Power MOSFET range expands to 60V for light electric vehicles

November 30, 2016 // By Nick Flaherty
 IXYS has added new 60V members to its TrenchT3 HiPerFET Power MOSFET family with on-resistance as low as 3.1 milliohms.

These new MOSFETs can withstand a junction temperature up to 175ºC and are avalanche rated at high avalanche current levels for high power density, switched-mode power conversion designs in industrial applications.

The high current carrying capability means paralleling multiple devices may not be necessary, simplifying the power system desing and improving its reliability at the same time. In addition, the fast intrinsic body diode helps achieve high efficiency, especially during high speed switching.

Target applications include brushed motor drive, brushless DC (BLDC) motor drive, synchronous rectification, high current switching power supplies, primary side switches, DC-DC converters, power control for drones, electric forklifts, light electric vehicles (LEV), battery chargers, solar panel power switches, solid state relays and cordless home appliances and power tools.

The new 60V TrenchT3 HiPerFET Power MOSFETs are available in TO-220, TO-263, and TO-247 packages with the IXFA220N06T3 and IXFH220N06T3 rated at 220A and the IXFP270N06T3 and IXFH270N06T3 at 270A.
