IR Intros the SMD-0.5 Package

International Rectifier (El Segundo, CA) introduced its new SMD-0.5 package, which is claimed to offer two times the power handling capability as the 18-pin leadless chip carrier. The new package is intended as an alternative to the LCC, TO-39 and the TO-257 packages. Designed to accommodate up to a die size 3, the SMD-0.5 can be used with any RAD-Hard MOSFET, HEXFRED diodes, Schottky or standard HEXFET power MOSFET device.

Pricing for unscreened SMD-0.5 is approximately $200 per unit for 500 units.
