Fairchild’s 40V PowerTrench MOSFET Improves Power Control and Efficiency in Power Steering Applications

Automotive design engineers of power steering systems require solutions that provide higher efficiency and better power control. Fairchild Semiconductor‘s 40V N-Channel PowerTrench® MOSFET helps designers with these challenges.

Utilizing Fairchild’s shielded-gate technology, the FDB9403 improves resistance and reduces capacitance. The device delivers a 20 percent lower RDS(ON) than its closest competitors, as well as a low Qg value that reduces power dissipation and ultimately improves overall efficiency. As a fundamental switch for electrical current control, the FDB9403 MOSFET efficiently controls the electrical power without wasting it, making it ideally suited for electrical power steering, suspension control and power train management applications.

Samples available upon request – Delivery 8-12 weeks ARO. Available in a D2PAK TO-263AB package the FDB9403 is priced at $2.48 in US 1,000 quantity pieces.
