Space saving PN and Trench Schottky rectifiers in CFP packages
PN and Trench Schottky rectifiers for power applications including automotive, industrial and consumer have been launched by Nexperia. The company now offers more than 90 devices in the clip-bonded FlatPower (CFP) packages.
Nexperia CFP packaging is size- and thermally-efficient, states the company. The package design has a solid copper clip and exposed heat sink to reduce the package’s thermal resistance and optimise the transfer of heat into the ambient environment, allowing smaller and thinner PCB designs.
The CFP package is available in three versions – CFP3 (SOD123W), CFP5 (SOD128) and CFP15 (SOT1289) – that support up to 15 A current.
“By entering the power rectifier market with such a broad product range of high performance miniature devices, Nexperia is delivering a future-proof solution and customers can be sure of the security of the supply chain in high volumes for these PN and Schottky rectifiers,” said Jan Fischer, Nexperia’s product marketing manager for power rectifiers.
“We are also investing heavily in new production facilities and plan significant increases in design personnel to further grow this portfolio and support our customers in the power markets.”
New devices available include VF/IR optimised 40 V/45 V and 60 V Trench Schottky rectifiers in CFP3/5/15 packaging
These high-performance parts build on Nexperia’s existing planar types, offering the combination of low reverse current and low forward voltage. This increases the thermal stability and reduces the risk of thermal runaway. The Trench Schottky rectifiers offer a TJ(max) of 175 degrees C and are AEC-Q101 qualified.
The portfolio consists of two different product groups: 200 V and 400 V hyperfast switching pn-rectifiers that feature an optimised recovery time (trr) of under 25 nano seconds and 200 V and 400 V Standard parts where trr > 500 nano seconds.
As well as the consumer-qualified solutions, AECQ101 qualified types with TJ(max) of 175 degrees C are also available.
Suitable for a range of applications including functions such as DC/DC conversion, free-wheeling diodes, bridge rectification and reverse polarity protection in automotive, consumer and industrial markets and equipment used in high temperature environments, the devices are now in mass production.
