New 8-V power MOSFETs lower power consumption and extend battery life

July 26, 2012 // By Paul Buckley
Alpha and Omega Semiconductor Limited (AOS) has added the first 8 V devices to its low voltage power MOSFET product line. 

The AON2400 and AON2401 feature ultra-low on-resistance rated at 1.2 VGS to extend battery life in low voltage applications.  The combined benefits of longer battery life and compact form factor make these new devices ideal for space-constrained portable applications such as smart phones, tablet PCs, UltraBook computers, eReaders, digital cameras and portable music players.

The AON2400 and AON2401 are the best-in-class 8V devices available in the market today.  They are housed in a thermally enhanced DFN2x2 power package and are available in N-Channel and P-Channel versions, respectively.  The ultra-low on-resistance is guaranteed down to very low gate rating of VGS = 1.2 V, which helps designers to simplify drive circuitry, lower power consumption and improve battery life. The compact footprint (2 mm x 2 mm) and ultra-thin (0.6 mm) profile of the thermally enhanced DFN2x2 enables more efficient solutions in space-constrained applications.

Both devices are available in the halogen-free DFN2x2 package.

Availability and Pricing

The AON2400 and AON2401 are immediately available in production quantities with a lead-time of 12 weeks.  The unit price for 1,000 pieces is $0.27.
