AEC-Q101 Qualified Dual MOSFET for Relay Drivers

January 28, 2018 by Paul Shepard

Toshiba Electronic Devices & Storage Corporation today announced the launch of the SSM6N357R, a new MOSFET with a built-in diode between the drain and gate terminals. The device is suited to driving inductive loads, such as mechanical relays. Volume shipments start today.

SSM6N357R integrates a pull-down resistor, a series resistor and a Zener diode, which reduces the parts count and save on board space. Furthermore, since it is a dual-type package product (2 in 1), it has an approximately 42% smaller mounting area than the alternative of using two SSM3K357R (2.4 x 2.9 x 0.8 mm) single-type package products.

An industry-standard TSOP6F-class package, a low operating voltage of 3.0V and AEC-Q101 qualification make the SSM6N357R suitable for automotive and many other applications.

Applications are expected to include:

  • Relay and solenoid control for automotive applications
  • Relay and solenoid control for industrial applications
  • Clutch control for OA equipment
