15A Bridge Rectifier (GBU150x)

July 7, 2021

GBU150x family of standard bridge rectifiers are 15A-rated rectifiers are available with peak repetitive reverse voltage ratings (VRRM) from 600 to 1,000V and 1.0ms peak forward surge current (IFSM) of 600A. The highest-rated (1KV) device, offered at the same price in production quantities as the others in the family, provides added design margin that can facilitate meeting regulatory standards, such as IEC61000-4-x and IEEE C62.XX ringing waveform requirements, in a wide range of mains-connected power conversion products.


Applications for the GBU150x Series include switch-mode power supplies (SMPS), battery chargers, lighting power supplies, TVs, and adapters.

  • Very-High Peak Forward Surge Current: With computing everywhere and electronic lighting replacing electrical lighting, transient and surge survival is a top-of-mind consideration.
  • UL-Recognized File # E-326243: UL-recognized components simplify agency approvals on the customers’ end products, saving time and money.
  • Standard GBU Package: Meets or exceeds operational specs of competitive devices; offers drop-in upgrade for existing GBU sockets for requirements from 50 to 1,000V -
    • one part can replace many others
    • simplifies the number of stocked SKU’s and reduces BOM costs.
  • Industry-Leading 1,000V Rating: Added design margin for universal input supplies–at no added cost.   
  • Global Materials Compliance: RoHS compliant, halogen-free (per IEC-61249-2-21.
  • Price: $0.450 in OEM Quantities
  • Lead Time: Samples: in-stock (Digi-Key and Mouser); Production quantities: 8 weeks, ARO
