Power mosfets enable improved efficiency, smaller form factor

Power mosfets enable improved efficiency, smaller form factor

Renesas Electronics has announced the availability of eight new P and N channel power mosfets for use in portable electronics such as smartphones and tablets.

Featuring 'industry leading' low loss, the 20V µPA2600 and the 30V µPA2601 are available in 2 x 2mm packages to deliver increased power efficiency and miniaturisation within smaller mobile device form factors.

The modules are designed to reduce mounting areas in a variety of applications, including load switches and charge/discharge control in portable devices and on/off control and overcurrent cutoff switches in rf power amplifiers.

According to Renesas, the µPA2600 can reduce the mounting area by approximately 30% compared to existing 3 × 2mm packages, while the µPA2672 can reduce the mounting area by approximately 40% compared to existing 3 × 3mm packages.

Both devices are said to feature an 'industry leading' on resistance of 9.3m℧.
