International Rectifier Corp. (IR, El Segundo, CA) announced its new Q101-qualified IRF2804S-7P, a 40 V, 1.6 milliohm, HEXFET™ power MOSFET rated at 160 A in a D2Pak outline. This specification makes the IRF2804S-7P suitable for heavy-duty, high-current automotive applications such as electronic power steering, 14 V integrated starter alternator systems and advanced alternator active rectification.
A standard three-lead D2Pak is limited to 75 A to 100 A, depending on lead cross-section and manufacturer’s specification method. However, IR’s new device has seven leads. The additional leads allow a larger wire-bond area, reducing die-free package resistance, enabling a device on-resistance specification of 1.6 millohm maximum at 25 °C.
The IRF2804S-7P is available now. Pricing is $2.85 each in 10,000-unit quantities.
