IR's New Family of Automotive-qualified MOSFETs Offers Rugged, Compact System Solution

Apr 7, 2011 | Technology Media

EL SEGUNDO, Calif. — International Rectifier, IR® (NYSE: IRF), a world leader in power management technology, today introduced a family of rugged automotive qualified MOSFETs for a range of applications used in Internal Combustion Engine (ICE) and hybrid vehicle platforms.

Utilizing IR's proven planar technology, the new MOSFET devices are available in an SO-8 package. Comprising both single and dual N and P channel devices, in addition to N and P channel devices integrated into a single package, the new family offers a rugged, compact system solution for driving multiple outputs or half-bridge circuits in automotive applications.

"Available in a wide range of voltages and configurations in an SO-8 package and utilizing IR's planar technology, our latest family of automotive-qualified MOSFETs provides a rugged compact solution well suited to applications where a robust MOSFET is needed to drive both resistive and inductive loads," said Benjamin Jackson, product manager, IR's Automotive Products Business Unit.

IR's automotive MOSFETs are subject to dynamic and static part average testing combined with 100 percent automated wafer level visual inspection as part of IR's automotive quality initiative targeting zero defects.

The new devices are qualified according to AEC-Q101 standards, feature an environmentally friendly, lead-free and RoHS compliant bill of materials.

* Part contains an N channel and P channel MOSFETs, parameters given are for the N channel devices, see datasheet for parameters for P channel switches.

Datasheets and qualification standards are available on the International Rectifier website. Spice models are available on request.
