South Portland, Maine—Fairchild Semiconductor's two Motion-SPM™ devices for under 200-watt inverter motors are specifically tailored to reduce board space and simplify designs while enhancing system performance and reliability in refrigerator applications. Each FCBS0550 (500 volt, 5 amp) and FCBS0650 (500 volt, 6 amp) Motion-SPM integrates six MOSFETs, three HVICs and one LVIC into a single, thermally efficient module. Compared to discrete solutions requiring multiple components, the Motion-SPMs reduce total board size by 20 percent in inverter motor designs for refrigerators, according to the company. Unlike most of the competition, these modules are UL-certified and thus satisfy basic creepage and clearance spacing requirements.
"Fairchild designed its integrated Motion-SPM for under 200-watt inverter motors to utilize a MOSFET as a switching device," said Taehoon Kim, vice president of the Functional Power Group. "The result is a module with a structure compact enough to achieve cost-effectiveness in low-power applications while offering system efficiency and reliability."
Additional system benefits include an internal MOSFET with high short-circuit withstanding capability to improve ruggedness, and a MOSFET body-diode for soft-recovery and low conduction loss to increase efficiency and reduce noise. The module's ceramic substrate provides a minimum isolation of 2500 VRMS and low leakage current.
Click here for the FCBS0550 datasheet and here for the FCBS0650. The FCBS0550 and FCBS0560 are available in a ceramic-based Mini-DIP (44 mm-by-26.8 mm). These lead (Pb)-free products meet or exceed the requirements of the joint IPC/JEDEC standard J-STD-020B and are compliant with the European Union requirements now in effect.
The FCBS0550 is priced at $10.80 each, and the FCB0650 is $12 each, both for 100 pieces. Samples are available now and delivery is 12 weeks ARO.
