Automotive MOSFETs can replace D2PAK – with less resistance

Automotive power MOSFETs from Toshiba Electronics Europe now include the TK1R5R04PB – the first device in its new low-resistance D2PAK+ package. While the D2PAK+ has the same footprint as a conventional D2PAK (or TO-263) package, it offers reduced package resistance, says the company, due to a source pin that is much wider near to the mould surface than that of a conventional D2PAK.

 The TK1R5R04PB is rated for 40V and 160A and has a maximum on resistance of 1.5mOhm (VGS = 10V). Minimum and maximum voltage threshold ratings (Vth) are 2.0 and 3.0V respectively.

 The MOSFETs are based on the company’s latest UMOS IX-H wafer process, which has, what the company describes as ‘excellent’ switching ripple suppression capability and can contribute to EMI noise reduction in applications.

 Target applications include automotive pumps, fans, DC/DC converters and load switches.

 The TK1R5R04PB will conform with AEC-Q101 automotive level qualification requirements.
