Supertex's New Dual Enhancement Mode MOSFET Features Low Conductance and Low Switching Losses

TC6215 Has Back-to-Back Zener Diodes and Four Volt Gate Drive

SUNNYVALE, CA--(Marketwire - November 18, 2008) - Supertex, Inc. (NASDAQ: SUPX), a recognized leader in high voltage analog and mixed signal integrated circuits (ICs), today introduced the TC6215, a high-speed, complementary pair of enhancement mode MOSFETs that features low on-resistance and is well suited for applications including high voltage pulsers, amplifiers, and buffers.

The TC6215 features a pair of high voltage, low threshold, N- and P-channel MOSFETs in an 8-lead SOIC package. The IC utilizes Supertex's proprietary advanced, vertical DMOS structure and silicon-gate manufacturing process to produce a device capable of high input impedance, high power handling capabilities, and positive temperature coefficient.

"With its low threshold voltage, low on-resistance, and high input impedance, the TC6215 is ideal for a wide variety of high performance applications, including medical ultrasound pulsers," states Ahmed Masood, Vice President of Marketing for Supertex. "This IC strengthens the Supertex complementary MOSFET buffer family by offering integrated back-to-back Zener diode clamps and guaranteed Rds(on) ratings at 4.0V, allowing it to be driven by standard 5.0V CMOS logic interfaces."

The TC6215 is available in an 8-pin SOIC package. The part is Green and RoHS compliant. Samples are available from stock. Lead-time for production quantities is 4-6 weeks ARO. Pricing is US$1.03 each for the TC6215TG-G in 1K quantities.
