Rectifier Diodes

A standard 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, AC into direct current DC.

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 can be connected in series in order to increase the peak inverse voltage (PIV) rating of the combination.

Rectifier Stud diodes consists of a housing component, which includes electrical element in a jacket from which a stud protrudes. A stud diode has aspects that differentiate it from normally constructed diodes. These aspects include having a current capable of a high surge, and versions of a stud cathode and a stud anode.

The stud diode is designed to be mounted in one fixed position. Usually used in applications like battery chargers, power supplies, converters, traction applications, controls for machine tools, and power drives.

Also add something re capsule and press fit

Our customers use rectifier diodes for a wide range of applications. One example is in the detection of radio signals – therefore instrumental in keeping communications open.
