Vishay Intertechnology’s Si7655DN MOSFET Named as Top-10 Power Product by Electronic Products China Magazine
-20 V P-Channel Device Combines Industry-Low On-Resistance With New Ultra-Slim PowerPAK® 1212-8S package
MALVERN, Pa. — October 2, 2013 — Vishay Intertechnology, Inc. (NYSE: VSH) today announced that its Si7655DN MOSFET was chosen as a winner in Electronic Products China magazine’s Eleventh Annual Top-10 Power Product Awards. The Si7655DN is the industry’s first −20 V p-channel MOSFET in a 3.3 mm by 3.3 mm package to offer on-resistance of just 4.8 mΩ maximum at a 4.5 V gate drive, and the first device to be released in a new version of the Vishay Siliconix PowerPAK® 1212 package.
The editors of Electronic Products China evaluated hundreds of products launched in the previous year on the basis of innovative design, significant advancement in technology or application, and substantial achievement in price and performance. Vishay’s Si7655DN MOSFET was selected because of its innovation and demonstrated success in adaptor, battery, and load switches, and power management applications.
The Electronic Products China Top-10 Power Product Awards were presented during the 2013 Power Technology Conference in a ceremony held on Sep 12 at The Presidential Hotel Beijing. Alice Wei, Sales Account Manager at Vishay’s Beijing office, accepted the award on behalf of Vishay.
The complete list of winners, in Mandarin Chinese, is available at the following web address: http://www.21ic.com/wz/CRXDQWHFA/20130901/20130901.htm
Utilizing the new PowerPAK 1212 package version and Vishay Siliconix’s industry- leading p-channel Gen III technology, the Si7655DN provides industry-low maximum on-resistance of 3.6 mΩ (- 10 V), 4.8 mΩ (- 4.5 V), and 8.5 mΩ (- 2.5 V). These specifications represent an improvement of 17 % or better over the next best competing -20 V devices.
The low on-resistance of the Si7655DN allows designers to achieve lower voltage drops in their circuits and promotes more efficient use of power and longer battery run times. Compared to the PowerPAK 1212, the device's PowerPAK 1212-8S package provides a 28 % slimmer nominal profile of 0.75 mm to save valuable board space, while maintaining the same PCB land pattern.
