Schottky Power Diode is a type of power diode that offers low forward voltage drop and has a fast switching speed. Schottky diodes can be used in applications where two parallel power supplies generate current. They also prevent reverse current flow from one supply entering the other. Schottky power diode is ideal for use in applications such as SMPS, power factor correction, solar inverter, DC/DC converters, industrial motor loads, wind generation inverter, UPS, clipping & clamping circuits, communication receivers, auxiliary power supply, freewheeling function, and reverse battery polarity protection.
