International Rectifier has introduced a family of automotive-qualified power MOSFETs housed in a rugged TO-220 fullpak package for applications including BLDC motors, pumps, and cooling systems.
The new 55V planar devices are available as standard and logic level gate drive MOSFETs in N and P channel configurations, and offer a maximum on-state resistance (Rds(on)) as low as 8 mO. The TO-220 fullpak package eliminates the need for additional insulating hardware to simplify design and improve overall system reliability.
ďBased on IRís proven planar technology, this new family of MOSFETs available in a TO-220 fullpak package performs well in linear mode and in automotive applications where a rugged, reliable MOSFET is needed to drive highly inductive loads,Ē said Jifeng Qin, product manager, Automotive MOSFETs, in the Automotive Products Business Unit.
IR's automotive MOSFETs are subject to dynamic and static part average testing combined with 100% automated wafer level visual inspection as part of the companyt's automotive quality initiative targeting zero defects. AEC-Q101 qualification requires that there is no more than a 20% change in Rds(on) after 1,000 temperature cycles of testing. However, in extended testing IRís bill of materials demonstrated a maximum Rds(on) shift of less than 10% at 5,000 temperature cycles. The new devices also feature a lead-free and RoHS compliant bill of materials.
Datasheets and qualification standards are available on the International Rectifier website at www.irf.com
