Philips Semiconductors announced that its High Performance Automotive (HPA) TrenchMOS family reduces on-resistance, improves ruggedness, and delivers better switching for high-current applications such as electronic power-assisted steering, integrated starter/alternators, and other motor-drive apps.

An advanced submicron process improves performance and optimization. The 10 devices in the family are available in all breakdown-voltage ratings common to automotive applications (30, 40, 55, 75, and 100V) and are rated at up to 75A. They are qualified to AEC Q101 for automotive discrete semiconductors.

Available in leaded and surface-mount packages, the family improves specific resistance by at least 25 percent over competing offerings, the company claimed, making for lower dissipation in standard discrete-power packages.

The lowest typical on-resistance figure for a TO-220 device is now down at 2.3 milliohms (2.7 milliohms maximum).

The HPA TrenchMOS devices are priced at roughly $2.95 each in quantities of 1,000.
