Nexperia’s Silicon Germanium (SiGe) Rectifiers Combine Best-in-Class Efficiency, Thermal Stability, and Space Savings

Nijmegen, May 27, 2020: Nexperia, the high-capacity production specialist in the production of semiconductor basic components, has launched a new range of silicon germanium (SiGe) rectifiers with reverse voltages of 120 V, 150 V and 200 V, and High efficiency with Schottky rectifier and thermal stability of fast recovery diode.

The new 1-3 A SiGe rectifiers are targeted at the automotive, communications infrastructure and server markets and are especially suitable for high temperature applications such as LED lighting, engine control units or fuel injection. These new ultra-low leakage devices offer an extended safe operating area with no thermal runaway up to 175 °C. At the same time, engineers can also use fast recovery diodes for high temperature designs to optimize the design for higher efficiency. SiGe rectifiers increase low forward voltage (Vf) and low Qrr, reducing conduction losses by 10-20%.

PMEG SiGe devices (PMEGxGxELR/P) are available in power diode industry standard space-saving, thermally efficient CFP3 and CFP5 packages. The package features solid copper clips that reduce thermal resistance and optimize heat transfer to the surrounding environment, enabling smaller, more compact PCBs. In addition, using SiGe technology, pin-to-pin replacement of Schottky and fast recovery diodes can be easily achieved.

Jan Fischer, Product Manager at Nexperia, commented: “Using Nexperia’s innovative silicon germanium technology gives engineers more options to design power circuits and ultimately build market-leading products like never before. SiGe is Nexperia Power A perfect complement to our diode offering, which includes over 100 Schottky rectifiers and fast recovery rectifiers in a clip-bonded FlatPower (CFP) package. In addition, we will continue to expand our product portfolio, always offering customers the right solution for their application. product.”

The first batch of 4 AEC-Q101 qualified 120V SiGe rectifiers are now in mass production. Eight more 150V and 200V products are now available for samples. For more information on SiGe rectifiers, including product specifications and data sheets, visit, or contact your Nexperia contact directly.
