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.
