STMicroelectronics has agreed to license the PolarPak power MOSFET package technology from Siliconix Inc., in the hope of promoting the package as an industry standard.

According to Siliconix, the PolarPak package handles twice the current of an industry-standard SO-8 package, yet occupies just half the height. The package has double-sided heat dissipation paths to improve thermal efficiency.

STMicroelectronics (Geneva, Switzerland) expects the package to complement its STripFET MOSFETs, optimized for power conversion in computer, datacom, and telecom applications.
