A New Approach to Circuit Breaker Design Using Silicon Carbide Switches - Nov 21
Mechanical circuit breakers can be low cost with minimal losses, but they operate slowly and wear out. Solid state versions overcome the problems and are becoming increasing viable as replacements at...

Automotive MOSFET meets power density of heavy-load applications

The AUIRF8736M2  is a 40V device uses the company’s COOLiRFET silicon technology, and is claimed to offer a 40% improvement in on-state resistance (Rds (on)) compared to previous generation devices - in the same footprint, or equivalent performance to a large can device in a 50% smaller package - to minimise conduction losses.

The dual-side cooling Medium Can DirectFET2 package delivers excellent thermal performance and low parasitic inductance, claims the company. 


 The MOSFET is qualified to AEC-Q101 and has a lead-free package and RoHS compliant bill of materials.
