AEC-Q101-qualified, 40-V N-channel power MOSFET features low on-resistance down to 1.1-mohms

December 06, 2012 // By Paul Buckley
Vishay Intertechnology, Inc. has introduced an AEC-Q101-qualified, 40 V n-channel TrenchFET power MOSFET which specifically targets ‘heavy duty’ automotive applications.

The SQM200N04-1m1L is Vishay’s first power MOSFET to take advantage of the low resistance contribution and very high current rating of the 7-pin D2PAK package.

When combined with Vishay’s high-density n-channel TrenchFET technology, the result is an ultra-low on-resistance of 1.1 mΩ max at 10 V and 1.3 mΩ max at 4.5 V, allowing the device to minimize conduction losses and operate at lower temperatures. In addition, a continuous drain current of 200 A can be sustained, allowing engineers to create robust designs with an additional margin for safety-critical applications.

The SQM200N04-1m1L is optimized for high-power automotive motor drive applications, including electric power steering. The device is designed and 100% tested in production to withstand single pulse avalanche events of 100 A and 500 mJ. The device also features low thermal resistance of 0.4 °C/W (junction to case), and a wide operating temperature range of − 55 to + 175 °C.

The SQM200N04-1m1L is RoHS-compliant, halogen-free, and 100 % Rg and UIS tested.

Availability

Samples and production quantities of the new automotive power MOSFET are available now, with lead times of 14 to 16 weeks for large orders.
