NP-Series of PowerMOSFETs

NEC Electronics Europe has expanded its NP-Series of PowerMOSFETs. The two devices have a breakthrough voltage of 100V and complement the lineup of low-voltage PowerMOSFETs for automotive applications.

Rated at 100V, the NP28N10SDE and NP36N10SDE can switch currents up to 28A and 36A respectively. Based on NEC Electronics' UMOS-2 technology, the devices combine RDS(on) values of 41m (NP28N10SDE) and 27m (NP36N10SDE) with low gate charge and input capacitance values. Both devices have logic level gate drive capability and are housed in the popular TO-252 (DPAK) SMD package.

Like all members of the NP Series, the devices are qualified to AEC-Q101, support a channel temperature up to 175C and are fully RoHS-compliant, thanks to tin-plated leads.

The new devices address the growing automotive demand for PowerMOSFETs with higher breakthrough voltage, such as DC/DC converters and injection control for gasoline and diesel injection systems or lighting applications like LED or HID lamps.

Samples of NP28N10SDE and NP36N10SDE are available now. Volume production is scheduled for the 2H 09.
