Does VMI manufacture space-level diodes?

The highest level QPL diode VMI manufactures is JANTXV. We have on many occasions, “up-screened” JANTXV diodes to the space level by following testing and processing guidelines outlined by NASA. Please contact us if you are interested in space level...

When diodes are used in a bridge or string configuration is it necessary to place equalizing resistors across the diodes? Also, is it necessary to place capacitors in parallel with the equalizing resistors to reduce noise and high voltage spikes?

Balancing resistors and capacitors are generally not required when using VMI diodes. A resistors connected in parallel with a rectifier is intended to balance the reverse bias voltage across the series rectifiers. As such, the resistor value needs to be selected such...
