  • Nexperia Announced Its First SiC MOSFETs in 3-pin TO-247 Package

    Nexperia Announced Its First SiC MOSFETs in 3-pin TO-247 Package

    3 Min Read

    Nexperia announced its first silicon carbide (SiC) MOSFETs with the release of two 1200 V discrete devices in 3-pin TO-247 packaging with RDS(on) values of 40 mΩ and 80 mΩ. NSF040120L3A0 and NSF080120L3A0 are the first in a series of planned releases which will see Nexperia’s SiC MOSFET portfolio quickly expand to include devices with a variety of RDS(on) ​​​​​​​ values in a choice of through-hole and surface mounted packages.

    This release addresses the market demand for the increased availability of high performance SiC MOSFETs in industrial applications including electric vehicle (EV) charging piles, uninterruptible power supplies (UPS) and inverters for solar and energy storage systems (ESS).

    “With these inaugural products, Nexperia and Mitsubishi Electric wanted to bring true innovation to a market that has been crying out for more wide-bandgap device suppliers”, according to Katrin Feurle, Senior Director & Head of Product Group SiC at Nexperia. “Nexperia can now offer SiC MOSFET devices which offer best-in-class performance across several parameters, including high RDS(on) temperature stability, low body diode voltage drop, tight threshold voltage specification as well as a very well-balanced gate charge ratio making the device safe against parasitic turn on. This is the opening chapter in our commitment to producing the highest quality SiC MOSFETs in our partnership with Mitsubishi Electric. Together we will undoubtedly push the boundaries of SiC device performance over the coming years”.

    “Together with Nexperia, we’re thrilled to introduce these new SiC MOSFETs as the first product of our partnership”, says Toru Iwagami, Senior General Manger, Power Device Works, Semiconductor & Device Group in Mitsubishi Electric. “Mitsubishi Electric has accumulated superior expertise of SiC power semiconductors, and our devices deliver a unique balance of characteristics.”

    RDS(on) is a critical performance parameter for SiC MOSFETs as it impacts conduction power losses. Nexperia identified this as a limiting factor in the performance of many currently available SiC devices and used its innovative process technology to ensure its new SiC MOSFETs offer industry-leading temperature stability, with the nominal value of RDS(on) increasing by only 38% over an operating temperature range from 25°C to 175°C. Unlike other many currently available SiC devices in the market.

    Nexperia’s SiC MOSFETs also exhibit the very low total gate charge (QG), which brings the advantage of lower gate drive losses. Furthermore, Nexperia balanced gate charge to have an exceptionally low ratio of QGD to QGS, a characteristic which increases device immunity against parasitic turn-on. 

    Together with the positive temperature coefficient of SiC MOSFETs, Nexperia’s SiC MOSFETs offers also ultra-low spread in device-to device threshold voltage, VGS(th), which allows very well-balanced current-carrying performance under static and dynamic conditions when devices are operated in parallel. Furthermore, low body diode forward voltage (VSD) is a parameter which increases device robustness and efficiency, while also relaxing the dead-time requirement for asynchronous rectification and free wheel operation. 

    Nexperia is also planning the future release of automotive grade MOSFETs. The NSF040120L3A0 and NSF080120L3A0 are available in production quantities now. Please contact Nexperia sales representatives for samples of the full SiC MOSFET offering.

  • Toshiba Launched New Automotive Grade 40V N-channel Power MOSFETs

    Toshiba Launched New Automotive Grade 40V N-channel Power MOSFETs

    2 Min Read

    Toshiba Electronics Europe GmbH has launched a pair of automotive grade 40V N-channel power MOSFETs based upon their latest U-MOS IX-H process. The new devices use a new S-TOGLTM (Small Transistor Outline Gull-wing Leads) package that offers a number of advantages in automotive applications.

    Automotive safety-critical applications such as steering, braking and autonomous driving systems generally require more devices than other systems to meet redundancy requirements. Here, a power MOSFET with high current density is required due to the size constraints within automotive equipment.

    The new XPJR6604PB and XPJ1R004PB have a VDSS rating of 40V and the XPJR6604PB is rated for a continuous drain current (ID) of 200A (XPJ1R004PB = 160A). Both devices are rated for pulsed current (IDP) at 3x this value, 600A and 480A respectively. The 200A rating is higher than that achieved by Toshiba’s 6.5mm × 9.5mm DPAK+ package.

    The new XPJR6604PB and XPJ1R004PB automotive MOSFETs use Toshiba’s innovative new S-TOGLTM package that measures just 7.0mm × 8.44mm × 2.3mm. The products are post-less and feature a multi-pin structure for the source leads that significantly decreases package resistance.

    Combining the S-TOGLTM package with Toshiba’s U-MOS IX-H process gives the XPJR6604PB an on-resistance (RDS(ON) Compared to this device, the mounting area has reduced by around 55% compared while retaining the channel-to-case thermal resistance characteristics (Zth(ch-c)) – XPJR6604PB = 0.4ºC/W and XPJ1R004PB = 0.67ºC/W.

    Many automotive applications are based in severely harsh environments, so the reliability of surface mount solder joints is a critical consideration. Toshiba’s S-TOGLTM package uses gull-wing leads that reduce mounting stress, improving the reliability of the solder joint.

    Suited to harsh temperature environments, the MOSFETs are AEC-Q101 qualified and capable of operating at channel temperatures (Tch) as high as 175ºC.

    Toshiba offers matched shipments for the devices, in which the gate threshold voltage range does not exceed 0.4V for each reel. This facilitates designs with small characteristic variations for applications requiring parallel connectivity for high-current operation.

  • ROHM Delivers New 5-Model Lineup of 100V Dual MOSFETs

    ROHM Delivers New 5-Model Lineup of 100V Dual MOSFETs

    2 Min Read

    ROHM has developed dual MOSFETs that integrate two 100V chips in a single package – ideal for fan motor drive applied in communication base stations and industrial equipment. New five-models have been added as part of the HP8KEx/HT8KEx (Nch+Nch) and HP8MEx (Nch+Pch) series.

    Recent years have seen a transition to higher voltages from conventional 12V/24V to 48V systems in communication base stations and industrial equipment, – intending to achieve higher efficiency by reducing current values. In these situations, switching MOSFETs are required a withstand voltage of 100V to account for voltage fluctuations, as 48V power supplies are also used in the fan motors for cooling these applications.

    However, increasing the breakdown voltage raises ON resistance (RDS(on)) (which is in a trade-off relationship), leading to decreased efficiency, making it difficult to achieve both lower RDS(on) and higher breakdown voltage. Moreover, unlike multiple individual drive MOSFETs normally applied in fan motors - dual MOSFETs that integrate two chips in one package are increasingly being adopted to save space.

    In response, ROHM developed two new series – the HP8KEx/HT8KEx (Nch+Nch) and the HP8MEx (Nch+Pch) – that combine Nch and Pch MOSFET chips using the latest processes. Both series achieve the industry’s lowest RDS(on) by adopting new backside heat dissipation packages with excellent heat dissipation characteristics. As a result, RDS(on) is reduced by up to 56% compared with standard dual MOSFETs (19.6mΩ for the HSOP8 and 57.0mΩ for the HSMT8 Nch+Nch), contributing to significantly lower set power consumption.

    At the same time, combining two chips in a single package provides greater space savings by reducing area considerably. For example, replacing two single-chip TO-252 MOSFETs with one HSOP8 decreases footprint by 77%.

    Next, ROHM will continue to expand its dual MOSFET lineup to withstand voltages ideal for industrial equipment while also developing low-noise variants. This is expected to contribute to solving social issues such as environmental protection by saving space and reducing power consumption in various applications.

    Application Examples

    – Fan motors for communication base stations
    – Fan motors for factory automation, and other industrial equipment
    – Fan motors for data center servers, etc.
