New Vishay Siliconix 100 V N-Channel TrenchFET® Power MOSFETs Featuring ThunderFET® Technology Offer Industry-Low On-Resistance Down to 83 mΩ in 1.6 mm by 1.6 mm and 2 mm by 2 mm Footprint Areas
MALVERN, PENNSYLVANIA — Jan. 7, 2013 — Vishay Intertechnology, Inc. (NYSE: VSH) today released two new 100 V n-channel TrenchFET® power MOSFETs that extend Vishay’s ThunderFET® technology to smaller package sizes. The SiB456DK and SiA416DJ are the industry’s first 100 V n-channel devices in the compact, thermally enhanced PowerPAK® SC-75 1.6 mm by 1.6 mm and PowerPAK SC-70 2 mm by 2 mm footprint areas to offer on-resistance of less than 200 mΩ and 100 mΩ, respectively.
The MOSFETs released today are optimized for boost converters, low-power DC/AC inverters, and primary side switching in miniature DC/DC converters for telecom bricks, point-of-load applications, and LED lighting in portable equipment. For designers, the devices’ ultra-compact PowerPAK SC-75 and PowerPAK SC-70 packages save PCB space in these applications, while their low on-resistance translates into lower conduction losses for reduced power consumption and higher efficiency. In addition, the MOSFETs’ on-resistance rating down to 4.5 V simplifies gate drives.
In applications where on-resistance is more critical than size, the 2 mm by 2 mm SiA416DJ offers a maximum on-resistance of 83 mΩ at 10 V and 130 mΩ at 4.5 V, and a low on-resistance times gate charge − a key figure of merit (FOM) for MOSFETs in DC/DC converter applications − of 540 mΩ-nC at 10 V and 455 mΩ-nC at 4.5 V. For applications where size is more critical, the 1.6 mm by 1.6 mm SiB456DK features maximum on-resistance of 185 mΩ at 10 V and 310 mΩ at 4.5 V, and an FOM of 611 mΩ-nC at 10 V and 558 mΩ-nC at 4.5 V.
Samples and production quantities of the new MOSFETs are available now, with lead times of 12 to 14 weeks for large orders.
