30 July 2012 NXP expands ultra small transistor portfolio NXP expands ultra small transistor portfolio In a bid to aid transition to the DFN1006 package, NXP has expanded its ultra small DFN1006B-3 transistor portfolio. The company now offers 60 bipolar transistors and 12 small signal N- and P-channel trench mosfets, creating what it claims the industry's broadest portfolio in the 1 x 0.6 x 0.37mm package. The DFN1006B-3 portfolio is designed to offer the same electrical and thermal performance as equivalent devices in much larger packages such as SOT23, SOT323 or SOT416. NXP says it saves pcb space as the leadless package has one tenth the footprint and less than half the height of SOT23. "In the race to miniaturise power switching applications, DFN1006 gives engineers a head start and has tremendous potential to replace SOT23 as the new standard," said Joachim Stange, product marketing manager, bipolar small signal transistors at NXP.
