New: Schottky in MiniMelf offers 2A of forward current at reduced reverse leakage
The SGL2-40-3G is a 2A/40V Schottky in the small yet powerful MiniMelf package. It uses the 3rd Generation chip technology offering a forward voltage drop of less than 530mV at 2A and a reverse leakage of below 40µA at 40V. Thus these parts are ideally suited for baterry charging circuits, where a high forward current is required for fast charging and low reverse leakage for a low discharging rate.
Further applications include the output rectification in AC/DC and DC/DC converters, polarity protection and free-wheeling diodes. The advantages of the MiniMelf case outline (DO-213AA) over lead-frame versions are explained in this short video.
