This white paper offers a closer look at the structure and the benefits of Trench Schottky rectifiers. This resource covers topics such as, why Trench rectifiers are typically the correct choice when a better trade-off between forwarding voltage drop and the leakage current is required, why they should also be selected in high power density applications where the ambient temperature is elevated, and what makes them ideal for applications with switching speeds above 100 kHz.
