UF4007 Diode Explained / Description
UF4007 is an ultrafast rectifier diode available in DO-41 plastic case or package same package as the 1N4007 diode is manufactured but don’t be confused it with 1N4007 it is a different diode although some of the ratings of this diode are the same as 1N4007 but it is different from it in many aspects. However, due to the same max repetitive peak reverse voltage and max average forward rectified current, it can still be used in the place of 1N4007. Yet you cannot replace it with 1n4007 in applications where ultrafast recovery time is a crucial requirement.
The UF4007 is a diode of UF400x series, the other diode in this series are UF4001, UF4002, UF4003, UF4004, UF4005, UF4006. All the diodes in this series are almost identical besides their “Peak Repetitive Reverse Voltage” “Maximum RMS Voltage” and DC Reverse Voltage. But if you want to use them to drive load under 50V then you can use any of them interchangeably. But if the load requirements are higher than 50V for example if the load requirement is under 100V then you can not use only UF4001 from the series because its peak repetitive voltage is 50V but you can still use all the other diodes in the series. Same as if your load requirements are more than 100V then you can use all the other diodes in the series except UF4001 and UF4002 and so on.
Looking at the maximum ratings of the UF4007 diode, the max repetitive peak reverse voltage is 1000V, Maximum RMS voltage is 700V, Max blocking voltage is also 1000V, max average forward rectified current is 1A, max non repetitive forward surge current is 30A and max power dissipation is 3 Watt.
Where We Can Use It
UF4007 diode has wide variety of uses in electronic circuits, it can be used in inverters, computers, telecommunication circuits and wide variety of other electronic applications and also in many general purpose applications. The detailed list of applications can be found in the applications heading below.

AC to DC converters
Blocking voltage and current in any desired direction
Safe Operating Guidelines / Absolute Maximum Ratings
To use it safely to get long term performance with this diode it is recommended to not use it to its maximum ratings and always stay 20% below its absolute maximum ratings such as the maximum repetitive reverse voltage is 1000V therefore do not drive load of more than 800V, the max average rectified forward current is 1A therefore do not drive load of more than 800mA and always store or operate the diode in temperatures above -55°C and below 175°C.
