Default HexFRED - why?

I keep seeing people going on about using HexFREDs in their rectifiers. What's so special about these? How are they different to ultrafast soft-recovery diodes, or is that what they are?

If you read the posts by FRED (Dieckman), can you imagine how beneficial 6 of them would be???
(Could't resist it Fred, apologies beforehand).

You are right!

The Hexfreds are IRs version of fast switching soft recovery diodes.

You can find similiar parts from IXYS, Harris, ON Semi, Fairchild etc.

I have used both IR & Fairchild parts with nice results.
