TO-220 package power MOSFETs simplify auto app design

International Rectifier has rolled out a family of power MOSFETs designed for automotive applications such as BLDC motors, pumps and cooling systems.

The automotive-qualified power MOSFETs are 55V planar devices housed in a rugged TO-220 fullpak package. They are available as standard and logic level gate drive MOSFETs in N and P channel configuration, and offer a maximum on-state resistance (Rds(on)) as low as 8m. The TO-220 fullpak package cuts the need for insulating hardware, simplifying design and improving system reliability.

AEC-Q101 qualification of MOSFETs requires that there is no more than a 20 percent change in Rds(on) after 1,000 temperature cycles of testing. However, in extended testing IR's new AU BOM demonstrated a maximum Rds(on) shift of less than 10 percent at 5,000 temperature cycles, showing the strength and ruggedness of the BOM.

The new devices are qualified according to AEC-Q101 standards, feature an environmentally friendly, Pb-free and RoHS compliant BOM.

Production orders are available immediately. Spice models are available on request.
