Hermetically SealedThe thing that this writer really likes about the SMF6533 is that it uses the hermetically sealed diode (1N6533), over-molds it with a rigid epoxy, and then forms and trims the leads. You get hermeticity in a plastic. surface mount package. This can be a big deal if you're running the diodes in a dielectric fluid.
What's Not to Like?So basically, the SMF6533 makes the world a better place because you can place it in your assemblies faster, it reduces hand assembly, and it saves you time AND money. Plus, you get the reliability of a hermetically sealed, glass-body diode in a plastic package. What's not to like about that?
Other voltage, current and Trr ratings are available in the same package style, offering the same advantages. More info.
