The half-bridge VS-GP100TS60SFPBF, VS-GP300TD60S, and VS-GP400TD60S combine Trench PT IGBTs with HEXFRED and FRED Pt anti-parallel diodes in the INT-A-PAK package and dual INT-A-PAK package with an extremely low profile of 17 mm.
This uses collocated quantum detectors which are either in parallel configuration or anti-parallel configuration, Fig.
S1, d] is decreased to zero and the anti-parallel diode in figure 13 [D.
In addition to the standard lineup, ROHM offers the popular SCH2080KE - the industry's first SiC MOSFET to co-package a discrete anti-parallel SiC Schottky barrier diode, featuring a forward voltage three times smaller than that of the body diode.
This low voltage level is beneficial as it ensures that the anti-parallel diodes in the transmit path remain off during the receive cycle of the system.
The structure is strange in that it features A-A binding (A normally pairs with T in DNA and or U in RNA) and, unlike the two anti-parallel strands of DNA, both halves of the poly(A) double helix run in the same direction.
In [12], a good performance BPF with quasi-elliptic frequency response was designed by using open stub loaded anti-parallel coupled-line.
Two diodes are anti-parallel arranged in the x direction in each unit cell.
Furthermore, the co-packaged anti-parallel diode in each of these devices delivers smooth soft reverse recovery characteristics.

As well known, metamaterials have unique properties in comparison with conventional nature materials, such as anti-parallel phase and group velocities, and a zero propagation constant [3-8], and can be realized by means of split-ring resonators (SRRs) or composite right/left-handed transmission line (TL) which is composed of unit cells with a series capacitance and a shunt inductance based on conventional transmission line.
The most popular power sources used for supplying ESP sections are those which are supplied from two phases, with two thyristors connected as anti-parallel which, by controlling the ignition angle, modify the effective voltage in the transformer's bootstrap primary and directly the voltage on the ESP's section.
