F12C20C rectifier diode


F12C20C is 12A, 200V, Common Cathode Fast Recovery Rectifier Diode.

A fast recovery rectifier, also known as a fast recovery diode, is a semiconductor device used in electronic circuits to rectify alternating current (AC) into direct current (DC). These diodes are designed with the specific feature of having a fast recovery time, which means they can switch off quickly when the polarity of the voltage across them reverses.

1. Fast Recovery Time: The primary distinguishing feature of fast recovery rectifiers is their ability to switch from the conducting to non-conducting state (and vice versa) with minimal delay when the voltage polarity changes. This fast switching reduces reverse recovery losses, making them suitable for high-frequency and high-efficiency applications.

2. Low Reverse Recovery Charge: Fast recovery rectifiers are designed to have low reverse recovery charge (Qrr). This property reduces the energy dissipated during the switching transition, minimizing power loss and improving efficiency.


1. Fast switching for high efficiency
