What is a Standard Rectifier?

A rectifier diode lets electrical current flow in only one direction and is mainly used for power supply operation. Rectifier diodes can handle higher current flow than regular diodes and are generally used in order to change alternating current into direct current. They are designed as discrete components or as integrated circuits and are usually fabricated from silicon and characterized by a fairly large P-N-junction surface. This results in high capacitance under reverse-bias conditions. In high-voltage supplies, two rectifier diodes or more may be connected in series in order to increase the peak-inverse-voltage (PIV) rating of the combination.

Types of Standard Rectifiers

There are many different kinds of standard rectifiers and at Future Electronics we stock many of the most common types categorized by maximum reverse current, maximum peak current, maximum reverse voltage, forward voltage, packaging type and maximum average rectified current. The parametric filters on our website can help refine your search results depending on the required specifications.

The most common sizes for maximum average rectified current are 1 A, 1.5 A, 3 A, 5 A and 6 A. We also carry standard rectifiers with maximum average rectified current as high as 400 A. Forward voltage can range from 1.1 mV to 1.3 kV, with the most common standard rectifier semiconductor chips having a forward voltage of 1.1 V or 1.15 V.

Standard Rectifiers from Future Electronics

Future Electronics has a full selection of standard rectifiers from several chip manufacturers that can be used to design a rectifier circuit or any other type of circuits that may require a standard rectifier. Simply choose from the standard rectifier technical attributes below and your search results will quickly be narrowed to match your specific standard rectifier application needs.

If you have a preferred brand, we deal with several manufacturers such as ON Semiconductor, Diodes Inc., Fairchild, Micro Commercial Comp or Vishay, among other chip manufacturers. You can easily refine your standard rectifier product search results by clicking your preferred standard rectifier brand below from our list of manufacturers.

Applications for Standard Rectifiers:

Standard rectifiers can be found regulating the power in computers and the electrical power in motor vehicles. They can also be used in battery chargers for rechargeable batteries, computer power supplies and vehicle batteries. Also, while rectifier diodes are often used for AC to DC conversion, diodes with rectifying characteristics are found in other uses than in electronics. For example, a diode is used in the detector of radios in order to perform radio demodulation.

Choosing the Right Standard Rectifier:

When you are looking for the right standard rectifiers, with the FutureElectronics.com parametric search, you can filter the results by various attributes: by Maximum Average Rectified Current (120 mA, 1.5A, 3A, 5A, 6 A,…), Maximum Peak Current (600 mA, 30 A, 50 A, 100 A,…) and Forward Voltage (1.1 mV to 1.3 kV) to name a few. You will be able to find the right semiconductor chip from several manufacturers that can be used to design a standard rectifier circuit or any other circuits requiring a standard rectifier.

Standard Rectifiers in Production Ready Packaging or R&D Quantities

Standard Rectifiers in Production Ready Packaging or R&D Quantities If the quantity of standard rectifiers required is less than a full reel, we offer customers many of our programmable standard rectifier products in tube, tray or individual quantities that will avoid unneeded surplus.

In addition, Future Electronics offers clients a unique bonded inventory program that is designed to eliminate potential problems that may arise from an unpredictable supply of products containing raw metals and products with erratic or long lead times.
