Fairchild Semiconductor has expanded its portfolio of AEC-Q101-qualified 30 and 40 V MOSFETs to include 11 more devices. These low-voltage PowerTrench® MOSFETs are designed to optimize efficiency, performance and board space in automotive applications such as power steering and integrated starters/ alternators, as well as in motor and solenoid-driver designs. The MOSFETs are suited for providing the higher current density and lower power dissipation required by systems as they evolve from being mechanical to electromechanical according to the latest trends in the automotive market. With RDS(on) characteristics as low as 2.0Ω. In addition to improving performance, these devices save board space since one of Fairchild's low RDS(on) MOSFETs replaces the two higher RDS(on) MOSFETs traditionally used in these designs.
