Nexperia claims industry-first with AEC-Q101 transistors 

MOSFET, discrete and logic component supplier, Nexperia, claims an industry-first with parts from its SOT23 general-purpose transistors and switching diodes are now specified for operation up to 175 degrees C. The selection includes the company’s high-speed switching diodes BAS16/21 and BC807/817 general-purpose transistors.

The SOT23 devices are qualified according to AEC-Q101 and feature a 25 per cent higher Ptot (total power dissipation) than basic 150 degrees C-rated parts. They can be used for gear boxes and motor drives, as well as LED lighting and other industrial uses.

The availability of a 175 degree C portfolio of small-signal diodes and transistors in SOT23 is fitting, as this year is the 50th anniversary of the invention of the SOT23 package by Philips; Nexperia is the former standard products business unit of NXP Semiconductors (formerly Philips Semiconductors).

Nexperia’s portfolio of 175 degree C diodes and transistors now cover all performance classes up to 15A, available in packages ranging from leadless DFN to leaded SMD and clipbond FlatPower (CFP) and LFPAK packages.

Nexperia specialises in discrete and MOSFET components and logic ICs that meet the stringent standards set by the automotive industry. The company says its products are benchmarks in efficiency, in terms of process, size, power and performance, and in small packages that save valuable energy and space.

The company has over 1,000 employees across Asia, Europe and the USA, an extensive IP portfolio and is certified to IATF 16949, ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and OHSAS 18001.
