Diodes Incorporated (Nasdaq: DIOD), a leading global manufacturer and supplier of high-quality application specific standard products within the broad discrete, logic and analog semiconductor markets, has won a Best Electronic Design award in Electronic Design magazine’s prestigious annual awards issue. The Company won the award in the Automotive category for its Super Barrier Rectifier (SBR®) product line launched in June, 2011.

Electronic Design staff editors selected the award winners from what they consider to be the best technology, products and standards announced during the year, while readers selected the best Ideas for Design and Hall of Fame inductees from a list proposed by the editorial staff.

“We rely on the expertise of our staff and contributing editors to ferret out the best of the many new technologies, products and standards that we have seen and wrote about over the past 12 months,” said Editor-in-Chief Joe Desposito. “These guys are in the trenches every day covering this industry and they know about all the great new innovations that have been introduced in the last year.”
