Seven new devices in DrMOS family deliver world-beating combination of leading-edge power performance in an ultra-compact package
RS Components (RS), the trading brand of Electrocomponents plc (LSE:ECM), the world’s leading high service distributor of electronics and maintenance products, today announced availability of seven new DrMOS MOSFET devices from Fairchild Semiconductor (NYSE: FCS), a leading global supplier of high performance semiconductor solutions for power and mobile products. The devices offer high-current handling capabilities in an ultra-compact package leading to high PCB packing density, superior to that of competitive products.
The DrMOS family is Fairchild’s next-generation, fully optimized and ultra-compact integrated MOSFET-plus-driver power-stage solution for high-current high-frequency synchronous buck DC-DC applications. The FDMF6820C, for example, integrates a driver IC, two power MOSFETs and a bootstrap Schottky diode into a thermally enhanced ultra-compact 6x6mm PQFN package.
The seven new devices, which include the FDMF6820A/B/C, FDMF6823A/B/C and FDMF6833C, implement Fairchild’s proprietary and patented PowerTrench™ MOSFET technology. PowerTrench technology provides clean switching and minimal ringing, and significantly reduces the need for external snubber circuit components in most buck converter applications.
Key applications for the modules include: high-performance gaming motherboards; compact Blade Servers; desktop computers; workstations; high-current DC-DC point-of-load converters; networking and telecom microprocessor voltage regulators; and small form-factor voltage regulator modules.
RS currently holds inventory of approximately 1900 Fairchild parts and has recently added more than 300 new products, all available from stock for same-day despatch.
