International Rectifier (El Segundo, CA) has added over 40 new devices, for use in isolated converters and ranging from 2V to 5V, to its industry-leading product line of primary- and secondary-side HEXFET power MOSFETs for dc/dc conversion applications.
The company claims that these new primary- and secondary-side MOSFETs bring efficiency improvements of up to four percent for a range of circuit topologies without further design changes. The primary-side HEXFET power MOSFETs are optimized for fast switching with good RDS(on), low gate charge and VGS ratings of 30V on all products.
The new secondary-side HEXFET power MOSFETs feature fast switching with low gate charge, low RDS(on) and a range of VGS ratings from 12V to 30V to match application requirements.
Production of these devices will commence by June 2000. Pricing starts at $0.64 for 10,000 pieces for primary devices, and at $0.63 for 10,000 pieces for secondary devices.
