Texas Instruments (TI) (NASDAQ: TXN) introduced the industry’s smallest, low on-resistance MOSFETS for space-constrained handheld applications, such as smartphones and tablets. The new family of FemtoFET™ MOSFET transistors features ultra-small packaging and on-resistance below 100 milli-ohms. The three N-channel and three P-channel FemtoFET MOSFETs are packaged in a land grid array (LGA) that reduces board […]
Fairchild Semiconductor (NYSE: FCS) has enhanced Power Supply WebDesigner (PSW), an online design and simulation tool that provides complete designs in under a minute to include power train discrete (MOSFET/IGBT/Rectifier) device power loss and efficiency analysis tools. Intended for 100 W to 3 kW designs as a function of input and output conditions, these […]
ROHM Semiconductor announced the release of two new 80-milliohm 1200V SiC (Silicon Carbide) MOSFETs, designated SCT2080KE and SCH2080KE, that are designed to deliver cost-effective, breakthrough performance. The SCH2080KE is the first SiC MOSFET co-packaged with a discrete anti-parallel SiC Schottky Barrier Diode (SBD), and features a forward voltage three times smaller than that of the […]
Designers of motor control systems need solutions that optimize efficiency and ensure maximum reliability under harsh application conditions. To meet this challenge, Fairchild Semiconductor developed the SPM 5 smart power module series 3-phase MOSFET inverter solution, providing designers an AC induction motor (ACIM) and Brushless DC (BLDC) motor inverter solution for motors up to 200W […]
The two new MOSFET devices are designed for use in smart phone and tablet PC applications where they provide a crucial part of the Lithium ion (Li-ion) battery charging / discharging protection circuit switching. The EFC6601R Power MOSFET and EFC6602R Power MOSFET help designers to reduce solution size, improve efficiency and maximize battery life. Suitable […]
Power Supply WebDesigner (PSW) online tool is enhanced to include complete continuous conduction mode (CCM), non-isolated active PFC buck and buck LED driver designs. From user-specified design inputs, the tool allows designers to choose all the components used in a design or have the tool automatically recommend the design. This tool provides the inexperienced designer […]
Choosing a high-quality, high-efficiency power supply that costs $50-$100, will probably pay for itself in the course of a year. Today’s trend is for power supplies to do more, have more, but cost less. Engineers that use power supplies are seeking less expensive supplies with additional features, while maintaining the same amount of energy needed […]
This powerpoint presentation discusses the fundamentals of power MOSFETS. Used mostly in integrated circuits, power MOSFETS is widely popular for its ability to handle high power levels. From diodes (the simplest form of a semiconductor), to parasitic capacitance, these illustrations and schematics are created to assist in clarifying the basics in power MOSFETS.
