Nexperia, a provider of essential semiconductors, has launched the industry’s first family of P-channel MOSFETs in a reliable, space-saving LFPAK56 portfolio. Previously, N-channel devices were only available in LFPAK packaging. However, Nexperia has now extended the options to include the P-channel feature, based on demand.
As part of the LFPAK56 (Power-SO8) package, the new devices qualify as an ideal replacement for DPAK MOSFETs, reducing their footprint by more than 50% while maintaining optimum performance levels.
Featuring a copper-clip structure, and available in 30 to 60 V, with RDS(on) down to 10 mΩ (30 V), the LFPAK package has been used in demanding applications (such as in the automotive industry) for almost 20 years. According to Nexperia, AEC-Q101 is significantly more reliable than is required by the AEC standard — exceeding key reliability test by 2x, while increasing reliability thanks to the unique package construction.
“The new P-channel MOSFETs target automotive applications, such as reverse polarity protection and as a high side switch for seat adjustment, sunroof, and window operation,” said Malte Struck, Nexperia’s product manager. “They are also suitable for industrial applications such as 5G base stations.”
