ROHM Says New MOSFETs Have Industry-best TRR
The seven 600 V members constituting the new R60xxVNx series deliver their industry-leading reverse recovery times (trr), ROHM says, via faster body diodes.
Looking to enhance efficiency in high-power applications, ROHM last Thursday announced the addition of seven new devices, the R60xxVNx series, to its established PrestoMOS family of 600 V super junction MOSFETs, which stand out for their low ON resistances and quick reverse recovery times (trr). The fresh n-channel units sport reverse recovery times in the range of 105 ns, typical of ROHM’s previous R60xxYNx series of 4th generation super junction MOSFET devices, while reducing RDS(ON)s by as much as 20%.

As illustrated by the area in red above, those PrestoMOS perks lead to significant power savings over standard super junction devices, illustrated in blue.
Because of the basic geometry of super junction semiconductors, lowering RDS(ON)s and maintaining reverse recovery time (trr) specifications are antagonistic targets. ROHM managed this difficult feat by miniaturizing, enabling the R60xxVNx series’ new members to reduce switching losses by approximately 17% when compared to other solutions.
The Seven New Devices

In the sections below, we present some of the most important features particular to each device, with most subject to conditions. Additionally, as there is far too much information to provide a comprehensive overview here, links are included to the pertinent datasheets.
The R6018VNX is available in a TO-220FM package and can dissipate up to 61 W. Continuous and pulsed drain currents are 10 A and 54 A, respectively. Typical RDS(ON) is 0.18 Ω, trr is 68 ns, and total gate charge (Qg) is 27 nC.

The R6055VNZ4 features typical reverse recovery times and RDS(ON)s of 112 ns and 0.059 Ω, respectively. Ensconced in a TO-247AD package, this device can dissipate up to 543 W. Its continuous drain current capacity is 55 A, and 165 A pulsed.
This SJ MOSFET features a typical trr of 125 ns with an RON of 0.042 ohms, and is sold in a TO-247AD package. Of all the new devices, the R6077VNZ can dissipate the most power at 781 W. The device can handle 231 A pulsed, and 77 A continuously.
ROHM intends to continue expanding its super junction MOSFET offerings, the company said, and will target further reductions in power waste and electrical noise generation.
