500-V N-channel power MOSFETs offers ultra-low on-resistance and gate charge of 68-nC
October 14, 2010 // Paul Buckley
Vishay Intertechnology, Inc., has released four new 500-V, 16-A n-channel power MOSFETs with ultra-low 0.38-Ω maximum on-resistance at a 10-V gate drive, and an improved gate charge of 68 nC, in the TO-220AB, TO-220 FULLPAK, D²PAK, and TO-247AC packages.
The low on-resistance of the SiHP16N50C (TO-220AB), SiHF16N50C (TO-220 FULLPAK), SiHB16N50C (D²PAK), and SiHG16N50C (TO-247AC) translates into lower conduction losses that save energy in power factor correction (PFC) boost circuits, pulse width modulation (PWM) half bridges, and LLC topologies in a wide range of applications, including notebook computer AC adapters, PC power supplies, LCD TVs, and open-frame power supplies.
In addition to their low on-resistance, the devices feature a gate charge of 68nC. Gate charge times on-resistance, a key figure of merit (FOM) for MOSFETs used in power conversion applications, is a low 25.84 Ω-nC. The new n-channel MOSFETs are produced using Vishay Planar Cell technology, which has been tailored to minimize on-state resistance and withstand high energy pulse in the avalanche and commutation modes. Compared to previous-generation MOSFETs, the SiHP16N50C, SiHF16N50C, SiHB16N50C, and SiHG16N50C also offer faster switching speeds and reduced switching losses.
The devices are compliant to RoHS Directive 2002/95/EC and 100% avalanche tested for reliable operation. Samples and production quantities of the new power MOSFETs are available now, with lead times of eight to 10 weeks for larger orders.

Internet of Things (IoT) manufacturer Ciseco has launched the Raspberry Pi ‘Wireless Inventors Kit’ (RasWIK), featuring 88 pieces to provide everything a Pi owner needs to follow a series of step-by-step projects or to create their own wireless devices, without the need for configuration or even writing code.
RasWIK has been designed to be highly accessible, demystifying the dark art of wireless and enabling anyone with basic computing skills to begin building wireless devices with a Raspberry Pi. You can create anything from a simple traffic light, to a battery monitor, or even a temperature gauge that sends data to the Xively IoT cloud so billions can access the data.This month, Ciseco is giving away twelve Raspberry Pi Wireless Inventors kits, worth £49.99 each for EETimes Europe's readers to win.
And the winners are...
In our previous reader offer, Farsens was giving away five kits for EEtimes Europe readers to evaluate its FenixVortex, Kineo and X1 wireless, battery free sensor tags.
Lucky winners include Mr A. Neil from the UK, Mr. E. Delvaux from Belgium, Mr Lengal from the Czech Republic, Mr H. Bijlsma from the Netherlands, and Mr G. Pfaff from Germany. All should be receiving their packages soon. Lets wish them some interesting findings with their projects.
