International Rectifier Corp. today announced the expansion of its StrongIRFET™ MOSFET portfolio to include 60V devices for a wide variety of industrial applications including power tools, light electric vehicle inverters, dc motor drives, Li-ion battery pack protection, and switched mode power supply secondary-side synchronous rectification. These devices are offered in both through-hole packages (with current ratings up to 195A and an Rds(on) of 2.0 milliOhms in a TO-220 package or 2.4 milliOhms in a TO-247 package) and surface-mount packages (with current ratings up to 240A, with an Rds(on) of 1.4 milliOhms in a D2-PAK-7).
The new family of 60V StrongIRFET power MOSFETs feature ultra-low on-state resistance (Rds(on)) for improved performance in low-frequency applications, very high-current carrying capability, soft body diode, and 3V typical threshold voltage to improve noise immunity. Qg ratings for the through-hole-packaged devices range from 272 nC to 58 nC and from 236 nC to 88 nC for the surface-mount devices. Each device in the family is 100% avalanche tested at industry highest avalanche current levels to ensure the most robust solution for demanding industrial applications.
"Featuring ultra-low Rds(on) and 100% avalanche tested to demanding industry levels to ensure robustness, IR's family of 60V StrongIRFET devices offers a selection of benchmark performance MOSFETs optimized for the industrial market," said David Schroeder, Executive Director of Marketing for IR's Power Management Devices Business Unit. Pricing for the IRFB7530 begins at US $1.46 each in 10,000 unit quantities. Production orders are available immediately.
