Intended for primary dc-to-dc switching applications for power supplies in fixed telecom networks and routers, the new n channel Si7820DN TrenchFET� power MOSFET is the smallest 200-V device on the market suited for power switching.
The PowerPAK 1212-8 package measures 3.3 mm by 3.3 mm with a low 1.07 mm height profile, offering smaller dimensions than SO-8 solutions while providing greatly superior thermal performance. Power dissipation for the PowerPAK 1212-8 package is 3.8 W, nearly double that of any MOSFET device with a TSSOP-8-size footprint or smaller. Typical thermal resistance is just 1.9 C/W compared to 16 C/W for the SO-8.
In addition to space savings and its high voltage capability, the Si7820DN features on-resistance of 240 mΩ and a typical gate charge of 12.1 nC (VGS=10 V). The new power MOSFET is rated for an operating junction and storage temperature range of �55 C to +150 C.
Samples of the 200 V Si7820DN TrenchFET power MOSFET are available now, with lead times of 10 to 12 weeks for production quantities. Pricing for U.S. delivery in 10,000-piece quantities is $1.26.
