New generation transistors join line card

Rutronik has added Infineon’s StrongIRFET 2 MOSFETs to its product portfolio. The new generation is designed to offer higher power efficiency, leading to improved overall system performance. Due to a higher current load tolerance, several parallel connected components are no longer necessary, saving PCB space and reducing costs. The transistors are in stock and available in different housing variants such as TO-220; TO-220 FullPAK, D2PAK, D2PAK 7-pin, DPAK and TOLL.

Compared to the previous StrongIRFET components in the 40 to 100V range, the new technology offers up to 40 per cent better on-resistance (RDS(on)) and up to 60 per cent lower nominal gate charge (Qg). Higher rated currents enable improved current carrying capacity.

Standard pinouts enable simple drop-in replacement. The MOSFETs are 100 per cent safety-tested, RoHS-compliant, halogen- free following IEC61249-2-21 product validation and meet the JEDEC standard.

Applications include: power management, adapters, motor drives, battery management, UPS and light electric vehicles.
