The AOGF40D65L1L from Alpha & Omega Semiconductor is a Soft and Fast Recovery Diode. It has a low forward voltage of 1.5 V and a forward current of up to 40 A. This diode has a repetitive peak reverse voltage of less than 650 V and a reverse current of up to 10 µA. It exhibits low reverse recovery charge and reverse recovery current characteristics, thereby reducing significant switching losses. This diode offers faster recovery to ensure smoother operations at high frequencies. This RoHS-compliant power diode is available in a surface-mount package and is ideal for AC/DC converters, boost diodes in PFC stages, free-wheeling diodes in inverters and motor drives, general-purpose inverters and switch mode power supplies (SMPS) applications.
