New power MOSFETs improve efficiency up to 2%

International Rectifier introduces a family of DirectFETplus power MOSFETs featuring the company's new generation of silicon that increases efficiency for 12-V input synchronous buck applications including next-generation servers, desktops, and notebooks.

The first two DirectFETplus devices in the new family, the IRF6811 and IRF6894, reduce on-state resistance (RDS(on)) and gate charge (Qg) compared to previous generation devices to significantly improve efficiency up to 2%. In addition, the devices offer ultra low gate resistance (Rg) enabling further efficiency improvement by minimizing switching losses in dc-dc converters.

The IRF6811 control MOSFET is available in a Small Can while the IRF6894 synchronous MOSFET is offered in a Medium Can. The 25-V DirectFETplus pair combines excellent RDS(on) and Rg with low charge to minimize conduction and switching losses. The IRF6894 also features a monolithically integrated Schottky that reduces losses associated with body diode conduction and reverse recovery. The new DirectFETplus MOSFETs are footprint compatible with previous generation devices.
