Toshiba Expands Family of SOP Advance MOSFETs With 8 New Lead-Free Finish(1) Devices for Greater Power Efficiency

New Devices Range in Power From 40 Volts to 250 Volts, Offering Low On-Resistance, Fast Switching Speeds, and a Small Footprint for Industrial and Mobile Computing Applications

IRVINE, Calif., Dec. 8 /PRNewswire/ -- Demonstrating its ongoing commitment to innovation in the medium power semiconductor market, Toshiba America Electronic Components, Inc. (TAEC)* today announced it has expanded its family of SOP Advance power metal oxide semiconductor field effect transistors (MOSFETs) with new 40-volt (V), 60V, 100V, 150V, 200V and 250V devices. Like Toshiba's initial 30V versions, the new higher voltage devices offer fast switching speeds, reduced gate charges, low on-resistance, small footprints, and excellent overall power efficiency. Developed by Toshiba Corp. (Toshiba), the SOP Advance series of MOSFETs is suitable for a number of industrial and mobile computing applications, including DC-DC converters, switching regulators, motor drives, and notebook PCs. In addition, TAEC today announced the first device in a new, smaller, thinner TSSOP Advance package, in an accompanying announcement.

Toshiba's latest 40V and 60V MOSFETs combine recently-introduced low-profile packaging, known as SOP Advance, with the company's ultra-high speed process technology to elevate current rating approximately 200 percent and improve power dissipation by approximately 50 percent, in comparison to standard SOP-8 packaging. Toshiba's SOP Advance packaging is roughly 50 percent thinner than standard SOP-8 and saves substantial space on printed circuit boards. All eight additions to the SOP Advance MOSFET line are N-channel single devices, and feature Lead(Pb)-Free Finish(1) terminals.

"The expansion of the SOP Advance line of MOSFETs demonstrates Toshiba's commitment to product designers who constantly face conflicting demands for smaller packaging with the need for increased power output and efficiency," said Brach Cox, senior business development manager for power devices in TAEC's discrete business unit. "Toshiba's new higher power MOSFET solutions feature thinner packaging and much higher current output, increased switching speeds, and greater power efficiency than ever before. The overall better performance of these devices will significantly assist designers in their efforts to enhance the functionality and power usage of a multitude of different products and applications."

Toshiba is offering two new 40-volt power MOSFETs, designated TPCA8014-H and TPCA8015-H, which carry different specifications for use in diverse applications. The TPCA8014-H model produces a drain current of 30 amps (A) (max.) superior switching speed (fall time) of 4 nanoseconds (ns) (typ.), low drain source on-state resistance (Rds(ON)) of 9.0 milliohms (max.), and a small gate charge (Qsw) of 7.4 nC (typ.). It also has a smaller footprint than previous MOSFETs, due to the use of smaller and thinner packaging. The TPCA8015-H offers an identical size footprint, and equally high switching speed.. However, the device produces a drain current of 35A (max.), extremely low drain source on-state resistance of 6.8 milliohms (max.), and a gate charge of 12.3nC (typ.).

Toshiba's TPCA8016-H is a 60V device producing a drain current of 25A (max.), high switching speed (fall time) of 3ns (typ.), low Rds(ON) of 21 milliohms (max.), and a small gate charge (Qsw) of 6.6nC (typ.). It has a smaller footprint than previous MOSFETs, due to the use of smaller and thinner packaging.

Because of their space savings and increased power efficiency, the 40V and 60V MOSFETS are ideal for high-speed DC-DC converters, notebooks PCs, portable equipment, and other products where printed circuit board space and power consumption levels are important considerations for reducing product size while preserving functionality.

There are also two 100V additions to the SOP Advance MOSFET line, designated TPCA8006-H and TPCA8007-H, respectively. The TPCA8006-H model produces a drain current of 18A (max.), excellent switching speed (fall time) of 2.0ns (typ.), Rds(ON) of 67 milliohms (max.), and a gate charge (Qsw) of 6.9nC (typ.). It also offers a small footprint because of its slimmer packaging. The TPCA8007-H device delivers the same footprint and switching speed as the TPCA8006-H, but carries a Rds(ON) of 47 milliohms (max.) and a gate charge (Qsw) of 8.5nC (typ.). The characteristics of the TPCA8006-H make it suitable for use in high-speed, high-efficiency DC-DC converters, while the TPCA8007-H is appropriate for larger output current DC-DC converters.

For higher speed, higher voltage applications, Toshiba offers three new SOP Advance MOSFETs: a 150V device designated TPCA8009-H, a 200V device designated TPCA8010-H and a 250V device designated TCPA8008-H. Because of their higher speed and higher power, these MOSFETS are ideally suited for high speed, high efficiency DC-DC converters, and motor drives. The 150V TPCA8009- H model produces a drain current of 7A (max.), a fast switching speed (fall time) of 13ns, extremely low Rds(ON) of 350 milliohms (max.), and a small gate charge (Qsw) of 3.7nC (typ.). The TPCA8010-H produces a drain current of 5.5A, a fast switching speed (fall time) of 13ns (typ.), Rds(ON) of 450 milliohms (max), and a small gate charge (Qsw) of 3.7nC (typ.). The highest power device in the family, the 250V TPCA8008-H, features a drain current of 4A (max.), switching speed of 13ns (typ.), Rds(ON) of 580 milliohms (max.), and a gate charge (Qsw) of 3.7nC (typ.).

(1) Lead(Pb)-Free Finish

Toshiba defines "Lead(Pb)-Free" in accordance with current industry standards as not to exceed 0.1 percent lead(Pb) by weight. This does not mean that Toshiba products that are labeled "Lead(Pb)-Free" are entirely free of lead(Pb). During a transitional phase, in addition to Lead(Pb)-Free products (that do not exceed 0.1. percent lead(Pb) by weight), TAEC will also offer products that have Lead(Pb)-Free terminals, which will be referred to as "Lead(Pb)-Free Finish". The Lead(Pb)-Free Finish products may contain greater than 0.1 percent lead(Pb) by weight in portions of the product other than the terminals, for example, in internal solder used to connect the semiconductor silicon to the package.
