1N5615 Temperature-Current Derating Curve in Still Air
1N5615 Diode Temperature-Current Derating Curve

Use the Curve to determine maximum operational forward current based on ambient temperature for the 1N5615 Diode. Diode Derating Curves
Temperature derating for a 1N5615 diode begins at 250C. How ever with the application of forced air cooling the diode will operate above 25C with out the need to derate or reduce the current. The derating curve shows operational limits for still air. Use the curves in gray to produce the longest component life. As with any axial leaded component use short leads to aid in heat conduction into the PWB.

Refer to MIL-PRF-19500/429; Semiconductor Device, Diode, Silicon, Power Rectifier, Fast Recovery, Types 1N5615, 1N5617, 1N5619, 1N5621, 1N5623, 1N5615US, 1N5617US, 1N5619US, 1N5621US, 1N5623US, JAN, JANTX, JANTXV, JANS, JANHC, AND JANKC, [Axial Lead, D-5A Surface Mount].
