TI number: G00358

This item contains epoxy encapsulated silicon rectifiers which have been sectioned to show the internal construction. These are examples of the rectifiers described in G00357.

As part of this product improvement, serrations were added to the leads to improve the device lead pull strength. Also, the die area was coated with alumina filled silastic to increase head dissipation and reduce the stresses caused by the molding compound.
