Santa Clara, Calif.NEC Electronics America Inc. has expanded its NP series of 24-trench power MOSFETs with devices that provide higher avalanche capability and maximum channel temperature with low on-state resistance.
The NP series' range of automotive and industrial systems applications include engine cooling fans, HVAC blower motor drives, electric power steering systems and integrated starter generators.
NEC attributes the improved ruggedness to its recently developed UMOS-2R process, an enhancement of its UMOS-2 trench process with a 0.5-micron design rule. This process results in a maximum repetitive avalanche energy rating of 1000 megajoules (mJ) and supports a maximum channel temperature of 200°C. Typical values for R(DS)(on) range from 2.9 milliohms to 5.8 milliohms and from 5500- to 9500-pF for C(iss).
The devices also feature 40-V and 55V V(DSS) (voltage drain source short) ratings, two I(D) DC ratings of 90 and 100 amperes and logic-/non-logic-type gate drives.
Pricing: Ranges from $1.90 to $1.50 each in low volumes.
Availability: Now in 50-unit quantities for TO-220 packaged devices, 50-unit quantities for TO-262 packaged devices and 800-unit quantities for TO-263 packaged devices.
Datasheets: NP100N04MDH, NP100N04MUH, NP90N04MDH, NP90N04MUH, NP100N055MDH, NP100N055MUH, NP90N055MDH and NP90N055MUH.
