TO-220 fullpak package MOSFETs family

  • 27-Jul-2012 05:03 EDT

International Rectifier (IR) offers a family of automotive-qualified power MOSFETs (metal-oxide-semiconductor field-effect transistor) housed in a rugged TO-220 fullpak package designed for automotive applications, including brushless direct current motors, pumps, and cooling systems. With a maximum on-state resistance (Rds(on)) as low as 8mΩ, the new 55-V planar devices are available as standard and logic-level gate-drive MOSFETs in N and P channel configuration. The TO-220 fullpak package eliminates the need for additional insulating hardware to simplify design and improve overall system reliability, according to the company. Based on IR’s planar technology, this new family of MOSFETs performs well in linear mode and in automotive applications where a rugged, reliable MOSFET is needed to drive highly inductive loads.
