|AZUR SPACE protection diodes
The AZUR SPACE diodes offer a highly reliable and well- proven protection of individual cells from negative bias in case of their possible inhomogeneous illumination in the string or damages.
There are two types of bypass diodes available. An external Si diode as well as a GaAs diode, which is monolithically integrated in the solar cell structure. As all of our space solar cells, both diode types are space- qualified and applicable for LEO, MEO and GEO missions.
