The First Four Products: 5-15kV
The first four products released in this new size range from 5,000 to 15,000 volts with current handling up to 1,000 mA. The SLU08M and SLU15M use the same internal architecture as the axial lead UX-FOB and UX-F15B – parts that have been available from Dean Technology for many years and have continually out performed anything offered by competitors. The SLP05M and SLP10M are consistent with existing axial lead diodes supplied by Dean.
Increased Demand for Diode Package Variety
“We have been getting increased requests for variety in our surface mount diodes”, says Craig Dean, CEO of Dean Technology, Inc. “With this new package, we aim to meet those requests, and more. Throughout this year, we will release several new products in this size that will handle up to 30,000 volts. For engineers that want to take advantage of the time, quality, and cost advantages of surface mount technology, this is going to be an absolute win”.
SL Series Roadmap
Dean Technology has a long and extensive roadmap for new products in the SL series. A wide range of standard parts will be available covering from 5,000 to 30,000 volts and currents ratings that will cover most of the existing axial lead diode offerings. These products will be rolled out over the coming months, as well as an additional gull wing lead configuration.
