Automotive grade AEC-Q101 qualified -100 V P-Channel MOSFET

Vishay Intertechnology has introduced an AEC-Q101 qualified p-channel -100 V TrenchFET MOSFET designed to increase power density and efficiency in automotive applications.

The Vishay Siliconix SQJ211ELP is not only the industry's first such device in the compact 5 mm by 6 mm PowerPAK SO-8L package with gullwing leads, but according to Vishay it also features best in class on-resistance down to 30 mΩ maximum / 24 mΩ typical at 10 V.

When compared to the closest competing p-channel devices in the DPAK and D²PAK packages, this Automotive Grade MOSFET delivers 26% and 46% lower typical on-resistance, respectively, while offering a 50% and 76% smaller footprint. The SQJ211ELP's low on-resistance translates into energy savings by reducing power losses from conduction, while its superior gate charge down to 45 nC at 10V reduces losses from gate driving.

With high temperature operation to +175 °C, the MOSFET provides the ruggedness and reliability required for automotive applications such as reverse polarity protection, battery management, high side load switching, and LED lighting. In addition, the SQJ211ELP's gullwing leads allow for increased automatic optical inspection (AOI) capabilities and provide mechanical stress relief for increased board-level reliability.

The device's -100V rating provides the safety margin required to support several popular input voltage rails, including 12V, 24V, and 48V systems.

In addition, as a p-channel MOSFET, the SQJ211ELP enables simpler gate drive designs that don't require the charge pump needed by its n-channel counterparts. Lead (Pb)-free, halogen-free, and RoHS-compliant, the MOSFET is 100 % Rg and UIS tested.
