Super Barrier Rectifier Technology from Diodes Incorporated Improves Efficiency and Reliability of Automotive Daytime Running Lights

PLANO, Texas–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Diodes Incorporated (Nasdaq: DIOD) today introduced the SBR10M100P5Q and
SBR8M100P5Q. These automotive-compliant super barrier rectifier (SBR®)
diodes employ patented and proprietary technology and can significantly
reduce power loss and lower operating temperatures in automotive
applications. When used as a recirculating diode in DC-to-DC buck-boost
converters for automotive daytime running light (DRL) applications,
these devices can improve system efficiency by up to 5% while reducing
operating temperatures by up to 5˚C.

The SBR10M100P5Q (10A, 100V) and SBR8M100P5Q (8A, 100V) feature low
forward voltage drop, ultra-low reverse leakage, and fast switching
speeds; these combine to reduce system efficiency losses by up to 30%.
When compared to traditional Schottky barrier diode technology, these
devices improve energy consumption and reduce running costs. Generating
less heat reduces the cost of cooling components and provides a more
reliable end product.

SBR technology is a drop-in replacement for existing Schottky diodes; it
can deliver immediate benefits without any costly redesign effort, and
reduces time to market for existing systems that need to meet more
stringent limits.

In addition to DRL, the SBR10M100P5Q and SBR8M100P5Q can be deployed in
other applications as they deliver superior efficiency and reliability
performance over Schottky diodes in polarity protection, switching and
blocking, as well as AC-DC and DC-DC conversion.

The SBR10M100P5Q and SBR8M100P5Q SBR diodes are automotive-compliant to
AEC-Q101 and can be supplied in accordance with PPAP requirements. They
are available in the efficient PowerDI®5 package. Further
