Release of New MOSFET Products with HSON Packages for Automotive electronic Control Units by RENESAS
Renesas Electronics has introduced seven new MOSFET (metal-oxide-semiconductor field-effect-transistor) products which are equipped with 8-pin HSON packages (half the size of the existing TO-252 package) designed to be used for automotive electronic units for such application as direct injection engine management and electric pump motor control. The new MOSFET products include N-channel MOSFETs with voltage rating of 40 and 60 volts as well as P-channel MOSFETs that can be used for solenoids and motor switching or for protection against reversed battery conditions.
The new products can switch currents up to 75 amperes DC as well as supporting channel temperatures of up to 175 degrees Celsius. The volume production of the new products is scheduled for this month.
