What is a Fast Rectifier?
Schottky rectifiers have been used for several years in the power supply industry. The primary advantages are switching speeds that approach zero time and very low forward voltage drop. The reverse recovery time of Schottky diodes provides extremely fast recovery characteristics. What little reverse recovery time they exhibit is dictated by their capacitance instead of minority carrier recombination such as in conventional PN junction rectifiers. This offers very little reverse current overshoot when switching the Schottky from a forward conducting mode to a reverse blocking state.
Types of Schottky Rectifiers
There are many different kinds of Schottky rectifiers. At Future Electronics we stock many of the most common types categorized by maximum average rectified current, maximum reverse voltage, maximum peak current, forward voltage, packaging type and maximum reverse current. The parametric filters on our website can help refine your search results depending on the required specifications.
The most common values for maximum average rectified current are 1 A, 2 A, 3 A and 10 A. We also carry Schottky rectifiers with maximum average rectified current up to 400 A. Maximum reverse voltage can have a range from 8 V to 1200 V, with the most common values being 30 V, 40 V, 60 V and 100 V.

Applications for Schottky Rectifiers:
Schottky rectifiers are ideal for output stages of switching power supplies. The very fast switching speed of Schottky rectifiers allows them to be used in very high frequency applications such as very low power signals and switching diode requirements of less than 100 picoseconds. Other applications include power management circuits and other various rectifier circuits.
Choosing the Right Schottky Rectifier:
When you are looking for the right Schottky rectifiers, with the FutureElectronics.com parametric search, you can filter the results by various attributes: by Maximum Average Rectified Current (1 mA, 1 A, 2 A, 3 A,…), Forward Voltage (0.57 mV, 500 mV, 550 mV, 700 mV,…) and Maximum Peak Current (from 50 mA to 27 kA) to name a few. You will be able to find the right Schottky bridge rectifier, power Schottky rectifier or Schottky barrier rectifier semiconductor chip for any device that may require a Schottky rectifier.
