Phoenix, AZ - May 19, 2000 - ON Semiconductor (Nasdaq: ONNN) today unveiled its latest high current SWITCHMODE Schottky Rectifier in the POWERTAP II package. Referred to as the MBRP40030CTL, this 400A, 30V rectifier is housed in a rugged package increasing reliability and improving thermal and mechanical characteristics over traditional power rectifiers. This device is equipped to handle high current enabling replacement of eight discrete devices.

This new rectifier offers low forward voltage drop (VF), minimizing power loss while reducing operating costs. The POWERTAP II employs the Schottky Barrier principle with a platinum barrier metal that produces optimal trade-off between forward voltage drop and reverse leakage (Ir). With its low VF of .41volts at 200A per leg, the rectifier minimizes system loss, resulting in higher efficiency. Furthermore, with its dual diode construction, this rectifier may be paralleled for even higher current output, allowing enhanced current sharing.

"Highly integrated circuits are the result of ON Semiconductor's commitment to develop and deliver market-driven solutions for the industrial controls market segment," noted Collette Hunt, vice president and general manager for ON Semiconductor's Discrete Products Business. "The development of the MBRP40030CTL POWERTAP II, SWITCHMODE Rectifier exemplifies our willingness and flexibility to enhance our product portfolio with products that meet the unique needs of our customers."

The high temperature rating of 150:C allows designers to use smaller heat sinks, also resulting in cost and space savings. The MBRP40030CTL is well suited for ORing, or isolation diode applications, between redundant power supplies. Other features include guaranteed reverse avalanche energy capability and overall improved mechanical ratings. All external surfaces of this rectifier are corrosion resistant. It can also be used in industrial controls design applications. Designers will benefit from the improved efficiency this highly integrated device affords them.

Samples and production quantities are currently available. The manufacturers suggested retail price for the MBRP40030CTL is $35.00 per piece. Additional technical information on this product can be located at
