The ABC400 Series utilizes a universal 90 to 264VAC input range with active power factor correction. The power supplies have a low 1U height and provide a single 12V, 24V or 48V output.
Additionally, with its third-generation, Infineon provides the industry's broadest SiC Schottky diode portfolio which not only includes the TO-220 package (2-pin version) but also the DPAK package for high power density surface mount designs.Main application areas for SiC Schottky diodes are active Power Factor Correction (CCM PFC) in Switched-Mode Power Supplies (SMPS) and other AC/DC and DC/DC power conversion applications such as solar inverters and motor drives.
Because the D classification included almost any electronic device with a 75 to 600W power supply, most D-class power supplies used some form of active power factor correction (PFC) to achieve the highest PF.
