BY127 Diode designed as a fast recovery rectifier diode with Low forward voltage drop, low reverse current and highly reliable diode. Basically, these types of diodes have a high surge current capacity with a maximum recurrent peak reverse voltage VRRM 1250V. This diode also known as the Power rectifier diode. BY127 Power Rectifier series of devices designed explicitly for general-purpose use in the rectification of medium frequencies, snubber, or Bootstrap diodes Commercial grade. Moreover, these power rectifier diode modules offer high thermal efficiency for long life and reliable product performance. These dual ultrafast Power Diode manufactured in a DO-41 Molded plastic. It is also rugged with a guaranteed electrostatic discharge voltage capability.
A diode designed as a semiconductor device specifically acts as a one-way switch for current. It permits flow of current easily in one direction, but severely restricts current from flowing in the opposite direction. The two terminals of the diode known as the anode and cathode. The most common applications of diode includes converting AC to DC, isolating signals from a supply, and mixing signals. The 2 sides of the diode doped differently. One side is the “p-side”, this features a positive charge. The opposite side reffered as the “n-side”, this has a negative charge. Both of these sides are layered together to form what is known as the “n-p junction” where they meet. The figure below indicates the diode symbol:
