Gleichmann Electronics Announces NEC NP Series of Power MOSFETs

Gleichmann Electronics expands its product portfolio of low-voltage power management devices with 24 new extremely robust power MOSFETs from NEC Electronics. The new devices, which are part of the NP series, feature 40-volt (V) and 55V VDSS (voltage drain source short) ratings, two ID (drain current) (DC) ratings of 90 and 100 amperes and logic-/non-logic-type gate drives.

NEC NP Power MOSFETThe improved ruggedness is achieved by the recently developed UMOS-2R process, an enhancement of NEC Electronics’ UMOS-2 trench process with a 0.5-micron design rule. This process results in a maximum repetitive avalanche energy rating of 1000 megajoules(mJ)and supports a maximum channel temperature of 200 degrees Celsius. Typical values for RDS(on) range from 2.9 milliohms (m?)to 5.8 m? and from 5500 picofarads(pF)to 9500 pF for Ciss.

The new family of rugged power MOSFETs is available in TO-220, TO-262 and TO-263ZP packages and is fully AEC-Q101 qualified and RoHS compliant.

Typical application areas for these rugged power MOSFETs include engine cooling fans, HVAC blower motor drives and electric power steering systems. All devices are in production and available now from Gleichmann Electronics.

About Gleichmann & Co. Electronics GmbH
Since its foundation in 1979, Gleichmann & Co. Electronics GmbH, in the same company group with MSC Vertriebs GmbH, has established itself as one of the leading pan European distributors of electronic components. One of the reasons for the high acceptance by customers and suppliers is the company”s early focus on comparatively few, highly sophisticated products such as microcontrollers, programmable logic devices, graphic displays and customized battery solutions. The deep technical know-how of our sales engineers and field applications engineers enable us to implement complete new designs right up to the manufactured product to satisfy customers” requests. Owning two ASIC design centers, a research laboratory and one of Europe”s largest, state-of-the-art programming facilities, Gleichmann & Co Electronics GmbH leads the way in custom design services.
