Central Semiconductor's CMDSH05-4 is an energy-efficient high current/low VF Schottky diode packaged in a SUPERmini SOD-323 package. This device offers a high continuous forward current of 500 mA and a low maximum VF specification of 0,35 V at 100 mA and 0,47 V at 500 mA. The CMDSH05-4 energy efficient device (EED) is suited for motor control and DC-DC applications in portable battery powered electronics.
Central Semiconductor's EED Schottky diodes typically have a forward voltage drop of at least 50% less than non-EED diodes. The SOD-323 surface mount package offers a nominal profile under 1,0 mm and compared to an SOD-123 uses 49% less circuit board space.
