60V FETs feature Ultra-low Rds(on) for Industrial Applications

June 30, 2014 by Jeff Shepard

International Rectifier Corp. (IR) today announced the expansion of its portfolio of 60V StrongIRFET™ power MOSFETs available in various standard and performance power packages. The new MOSFETs, which feature ultra-low on-state resistance (Rds(on)), are designed for a wide range of industrial applications including power tools, light electric vehicle (LEV) inverters, dc motor drives, Li-ion battery pack protection, and secondary-side synchronous rectification in ac-dc power supplies and dc-dc converters. They are rated for 58A to 240A.

Available in through-hole and surface mount packages, the expanded 60V StrongIRFET™ family includes the IRF7580M. Housed in a low-profile, ultra-compact Medium Can (ME) DirectFET® package that delivers high current density while reducing overall system size and cost, the IRF7580M is well-suited for space-constrained high-power industrial designs. Rds(on) ratings for the expanded 60V StrongIRFET™ family range from 7.9 milliOhms to 1.4 milliOhms.

The family of 19 60V StrongIRFETâ„¢ power MOSFETs offers ultra-low on-state resistance (Rds(on)) for improved performance in low frequency applications, very high-current carrying capability, soft body diode, and 3V typical threshold voltage to improve noise immunity. Each device in the family is 100% avalanche tested at industry highest avalanche current levels to ensure the most robust solution for demanding industrial applications.

“Featuring low Rds(on) and high current capability for the industrial market, IR’s expansive 60V StrongIRFET™ MOSFET portfolio with its diverse package offering provides designers flexibility in selecting the optimal device for their application based on their price/performance criteria,” said David Schroeder, Executive Director of Marketing, IR’s Power Management Devices Business Unit.

As with the entire DirectFET® family, the new IRF7580M Medium Can device has wire bond free construction for improving reliability performance. Moreover, the DirectFET® package meets all RoHS requirements such as a completely lead-free bill of materials, and is, therefore, ideally suited for long lifecycle designs. Alternative high performance packages feature lead die attach under RoHS exemption 7(a) which is due to expire in 2016. Pricing for IRF7580M begins at US $0.78 each in 10,000 unit quantities. Production orders are available immediately.
