  • A solid-state diode having a metal-semiconductor junction, used in fast switching applications.

    • ‘It also features an integrated Schottky diode, further reducing the number of components required on the printed circuit board.’
    • ‘The design is based on a multichip module that carries the driver circuitry, power MOSFETs and Schottky diode.’
