Fairchild is addressing the advanced needs of automakers and their parts suppliers with new automotive qualified SuperFET® II MOSFET product families, for cleaner and smarter vehicles overall and are ideal for increasing the power ratings of onboard chargers and DC-to-DC converters used in hybrid, plug-in hybrid and all-electric vehicles.
Fairchild's AEC-Q101 qualified 650V SuperFET II MOSFET family is comprised of 9 devices in a wide range of package options and covering an industry-low 41 mOhm RDS(on), enabling customers to reduce both switching and conduction losses.
The 650V SuperFET® II MOSFET family is well suited for hybrid and plug-in electric vehicles as its low specific resistance and excellent switching performance enable high levels of efficiency. The new family uses the latest super-junction technology to enable both a small form factor and greater efficiency while its robust built-in diode at high dv/dt conditions can improve bridge circuit reliability.
Additionally, the 650V SuperFET II MOSFET family's body-diode performance enables manufacturers to achieve superior switching performance with low electromagnetic interference (EMI). This is important as hybrid and plug-in electric vehicles are inherently 'harsh' EMI environments and adding as little additional EMI as possible is an advantage to improve the whole system reliability.
