VMI surface mount diodes gain QPL approval

VMI surface mount diodes gain QPL approval

Voltage Multipliers Inc (VMI), manufacturer of high voltage diodes, opto-couplers, rectifiers, multipliers and power supplies, has attained QPL approval on its high voltage, surface mount, formed lead diodes.

The Qualified Product List (QPL) is a listing of products, or a family of products, that have met the qualification requirements set out in the application specification. QPL is used by government, military and aerospace customers to select items for procurement that are known to have met approved standards.

Available in the UK from APC Hi-Rel, VMI can now offer JANTX/JANTXV 1N6513FL, 1N6515FL and 1N6517FL diodes, with the reverse voltages of 2KV, 3KV and 5KV. These JANTX/JANTXV high voltage diodes will be processed per Mil-Pref-19500, Mil-Std-750 and the application slash sheets /575, /576, and /577. This approval is great addition to VMI’s existing QPL high voltage diode range.

Mil-Pref-19500 specification establishes the general performance requirements for semiconductor devices. Product assurance is provided by effective screening, conformance inspection and process controls to mitigate risk. Mission assurance and standardisation of parts are the highest priorities. This specification establishes a heritage program of semiconductor devices the military and space community can rely on to be dependable and available.

VMI has nearly four decades of expertise in the design, manufacture and testing of high voltage diodes and power supplies within their single site 34,000 sq ft facility in California. All wafers are doped, diffused and metallised in-house.
