Field-Effect Rectifier Diodes (FERD) – Surpassing the traditional Schottky webinar

Discover how ST’s advanced field-effect rectifier diodes enable higher performance and reduced costs in power electronics systems

During this one-hour webinar, we will discuss ST’s best-in-class rectification-diode technology for low-voltage rectifiers, including details on their electrical behavior and characteristics. ST’s broad device portfolio and available package options will also be presented, along with some application examples.

You will learn about the advantages that field-effect rectifier diodes offer compared to more standard Schottky diodes, as well as the vision from ST on which applications stand to gain most from these components.

Join us Wednesday, February 28th at 12 noon CST

You will learn:

  • What field-effect rectifier diode (FERD) technology is
  • How this technology can improve the price/performance ratio of your application

There will be a Q&A session at the end of the webinar to answer your questions real time.

Field-effect rectifier diodes (FERDs)

  • Field-Effect Rectifiers offer an improved price/performance ratio for low-voltage rectification (up to 100 V).
  • The technology allows the design of diodes with low conduction losses coupled with no switching losses and controlled leakage current. They offer higher reliability and lower risk of thermal runaway compared to Schottky diodes. They also allow designers to reach higher efficiency levels without the need to move to synchronous rectification systems based on more expensive MOSFETs and controllers.
  • ST’s FERDs come in a variety of power thru-hole and SMD packages, allowing for greater design flexibility and high power-integration levels.
  • For each voltage-family, various electrical trade-offs are possible to optimize the performance of the rectifier, depending on the application conditions.
