International Rectifier has expanded its StrongIRFET family to include 20-30V devices for applications such as high performance computing and communications. The family is headlined by the IRL6283M 20V DirectFET featuring ultra-low on-state resistance (Rds(on)).
The IRL6283M features Rds(on) of only 500 µOhm (typical) in a low profile 30 mm2 DirectFET Medium Can package that significantly reduces conduction losses. This makes it suitable for active ORing and electronic fuse (eFuse) applications. The new device can be used from 3.3V, 5V or 12V rails and offers 15% lower losses at 20A than the best alternative PQFN devices in the same 30mm2 form factor, enabling designers to reduce part count in high current applications.
As with the entire DirectFET family, the IRL6283M allows top-side cooling for enhanced electrical and thermal performance and wire bond-free construction for improved reliability. Moreover, the DirectFET package meets all RoHS requirements such as a completely lead-free bill of materials being well suited for long lifecycle designs. Alternative high performance packages feature high-lead die attach under RoHS exemption 7(a) which is due to expire in 2016.
IR’s StrongIRFET family also includes PQFN devices with industry standard footprints in packages that feature an environmentally friendly, lead-free and RoHS compliant bill of materials.
