New power MOSFET family offers higher efficiency in switching converters
Infineon StrongIRFET 2 MOSFETs offer lower on-resistance and gate charge than earlier StrongIRFET products
The StrongIRFET™ 2 family of N-channel power MOSFETs from Infineon offers higher efficiency in switching power-conversion applications than the first generation of StrongIRFET devices, while matching the attractive price/performance ratio and broad availability.
The new StrongIRFET 2 technology offers up to 40% lower on-resistance and up to 60% lower gate charge. Increased current ratings allow for higher current-carrying capability, eliminating the need to parallel multiple devices. This results in lower bill-of-materials cost and a smaller board footprint.
The StrongIRFET 2 MOSFETs are suitable for both low and high switching frequencies, and with breakdown-voltage options of 40 V, 60 V, 80 V and 100 V, they fit a broad range of applications.
The new MOSFETs are available now in an industry-standard TO-220 through-hole package. The standard pin-out allows for drop-in replacement of other MOSFETs. Products in the family are also available in TO-220 FullPAK, D2PAK, D2PAK 7-pin, DPAK and TOLL package options.
