International Rectifier announces a new family of automotive-qualified MOSFETs for a variety of applications requiring low on-state resistance (RDS(on)), including heavy load applications used in traditional Internal Combustion Engine (ICE) platforms, as well as micro and hybrid vehicles.

These rugged planar devices feature low RDS(on) and are available across a range of voltages from 40 to 75 V in a variety of Surface Mount Device (SMD) and through-hole packages. The AUIRL1404S is a logic level gate drive MOSFET offered at 40 V; other devices in the family are standard gate drive MOSFETs offered at 40, 55, and 75 V.

The new automotive MOSFETs are subject to dynamic and static part average testing combined with 100% automated wafer level visual inspection. AEC-Q101 qualification requires that there is no more than a 20% change in RDS(on) after 1,000 temperature cycles of testing. In extended testing, IR’s new AU bill of materials demonstrated a maximum RDS(on) shift of less than 10% at 5,000 temperature cycles. The new devices are qualified according to AEC-Q101 standards, and feature an environmentally friendly, lead-free, and RoHS compliant bill of materials.
