ROHM’s New 4th Gen Fast Recovery Diodes Deliver Low Loss Performance Together with Ultra-Low Noise Characteristics

RFL/RFS series improves power supply efficiency and reduces noise measures in air conditioners and EV charging stations.

ROHM has developed its 4th Generation 650V fast recovery diodes, the RFL/RFS series, featuring low forward voltage (VF), fast reverse recovery time (trr) respectively, as well as ultra-low noise characteristics. The new devices are ideal for industrial and consumer equipment that handle large amounts of power, such as air conditioners and EV charging stations.

In recent years, more effective use of electricity is necessary to cope with the rise in global power consumption. This is especially true for white goods and industrial equipment that handle large amounts of power such as EV charging stations. These require not only high electrical efficiency but also reducing workload for noise countermeasures in circuit design. In response, ROHM developed diodes that combine low VF for more efficient operation with fast trr characteristics that provide less loss and ultra-low noise during switching OFF.

Optimizing the device structure and materials allows the RFL/RFS series to achieve the optimum balance of VF and trr, which are important characteristics for FRDs but are in a trade-off relationship. The low VF RFL series reduces VF by approx. 3.2% and trr by about 8.3% over the conventional RFN series, while the high-speed RFS series VF by approx. 17.9% vs the conventional RFUH series. Both products contribute to higher power supply efficiency through optimal design based on circuit requirements. Furthermore, ultra-low noise diode recovery characteristics are achieved. They help to reduce both workload and components for noise.
