Device Features High 37.8 A Continuous Drain Current and On-Resistance Down to 8.4 mΩ in Compact PowerPAK® SC-70 Package

MALVERN, Pa. — April 6, 2017 — Vishay Intertechnology, Inc. (NYSE: VSH) today introduced a new 30 V n-channel TrenchFET® Gen IV power MOSFET that delivers increased power density and efficiency for mobile devices, consumer electronics, and power supplies. Offered in the ultra compact PowerPAK® SC-70 package, the Vishay Siliconix SiA468DJ provides the industry's lowest on-resistance and highest continuous drain current for 30 V devices in 2 mm by 2 mm plastic packages.

60 % smaller than devices in the PowerPAK 1212, the MOSFET released today is one of the most compact 30 V solutions available for DC/DC conversion and load switching for battery management in devices such as notebook computers, tablets, VR headsets, and DC-DC bricks; H bridges in wireless chargers; and motor drive control for drones.

To reduce conduction loss and increase efficiency in these applications, the SiA468DJ features extremely low on-resistance of 8.4 mΩ at 10 V and 11.4 mΩ at 4.5 V. These values represent a 51 % improvement over previous-generation solutions and a 6 % improvement over the closest competing device. In addition, the MOSFET's low gate charge times on-resistance figure of merit (FOM) is optimized for a diverse range of power conversion topologies.

The SiA468DJ's 37.8 A continuous drain current is 68 % higher than previous-generation devices and 50 % higher than the closest competing solution. This high current rating offers an ample safety margin for applications that encounter high transient current. The MOSFET is 100 % RG-tested, RoHS-compliant, and halogen-free.

Samples and production quantities of the SiA468DJ are available now, with lead times of 13 weeks for large orders. Pricing for U.S. delivery only starts at $0.34 per piece.
