I was looking for
SCHOTTKY diode for designing
Full-Wave Rectifier for PoE. I was searching for the diode but came across the term
Diode Array. After applying filter for my specification, I found the one. The diode that I found considering cost and specification is over here. Is there any preferred configuration of diode array like independent, common-cathode or anode, maximum number of diode in single package?
I would like to know what are advantage and disadvantages of using
diode array over normal diode. Which one is preferred for Full-Wave rectifier for PoE application? Is there any standard?
My Specifications are:
Reverse Voltage Protection: Atleast 40V (Considering Full-Wave bridge-Rectifier)
Average Current: 500mA
Forward Voltage Drop at 500mA pr above: As less as possible.
