New Vishay Siliconix AEC-Q101-Qualified, 40 V N-Channel TrenchFET® Power MOSFET Features Low On-Resistance Down to 1.1 Milliohms and Continuous Drain Current of 200 A in 7-Pin D2PAK Packaging

MALVERN, PA--(Marketwire - Dec 6, 2012) - Vishay Intertechnology Inc. (NYSE: VSH) today introduced a new AEC-Q101-qualified, 40 V n-channel TrenchFET® power MOSFET. Specifically for "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 milliohms max at 10 V and 1.3 milliohms 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 released today 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. It also features low thermal resistance of 0.4 °C/W (junction to case), and a wide operating temperature range of - 55 °C to + 175 °C.

The SQM200N04-1m1L is RoHS-compliant, halogen-free, and 100 % Rg and UIS tested. The device extends Vishay's family of AEC-Q101 qualified TrenchFET power MOSFETs, more information on which can be found at http://www.vishay.com/mosfets/automotive-mosfets/.

Samples and production quantities of the new automotive power MOSFET are available now, with lead times of 14 to 16 weeks for large orders. Follow Vishay power MOSFETs for automotive applications at http://twitter.com/vishayindust.
