DIODESTAR is a proprietary process platform from Diodes Inc. for the manufacture of next generation high voltage rectifiers. The DIODESTAR process generates rectifiers that are characterized by >400 V voltage handling, soft recovery, and ultra-fast switching. This process will support the production of a range of high voltage rectifiers for a variety of end applications, including LCD LED backlit TVs, consumer adapters, and notebook and desktop computers.
These 600 V high efficiency DIODESTAR components have enabled Diodes to enter the PFC market, which is both large and expanding rapidly. DIODESTAR parts offer credible second-source equivalent to ultra-fast industry standard rectifiers.
