The HFA40HF120C from Infineon Technologies is an Ultrafast Recovery Diode that is ideal for power converters, motors drives and other applications where switching losses are a significant portion of the total losses. It has a forward voltage of 3.1 V and a forward current of up to 11 A. This diode has a repetitive peak reverse voltage of less than 1200 V and a reverse current of 7.25 A. It delivers optimal performance and minimizes losses and EMI/RF interference in high-frequency power conditioning systems. This diode has undergone extensive characterization, simplifying loss calculations in diverse operating environments by analyzing recovery behavior under varying conditions such as current, temperature, and di/dt. It ensures a more efficient and simplified system, as the soft recovery feature eliminates the need for a snubber in most applications. This diode is available in a surface-mount package that measures 11.55 x 16.00 x 3.58 mm.
