Provided in the ultra-low profile PowerDI® -5SP package, the 12 A rated SBR® SBR12U45LH addresses key design and manufacturing concerns of solar panel makers producing next-generation PV modules. In its critical role as a highly-efficient PV module bypass diode, this latest SBR has a maximum package height of only 0.75 mm, enabling it to be integrated within the solar panel, it effectively removes the need for separate junction boxes. With package-side located leads, the PowerDI-5SP can be mounted into recesses in the panel, adding only 0.21 mm to solar panel height. In addition, the 9 mm long leads of the package support simple solder-bar mounting, helping solar panel manufacturers avoid the use of processes. Offering the industry’s lowest rectifier forward voltage drop at 0.38 V at 12 A and 125°C, the SBR12U45LH ensures negligible heat generation and temperature rise during operation, resulting in safer and more reliable operation of solar panels.
