AEC-Q101 175°C MOSFETs in miniature leadless packages replace larger SO8 and SOT223 devices

September 13, 2018 // By Nick Flaherty
Nexperia has launched the industry’s first AEC-Q101-qualified MOSFETs that are both rated for use at up to 175 °C and are available in Discrete Flat No lead DFN2020 packages. These measure just 2 mm x 2 mm, much smaller and lighter than SOT223 and SO8-packages yet with comparable electrical and thermal performance.

Many leadless packages cannot be inspected using AOI techniques, so Nexperia pioneered the development of the DFN2020 package with side-wettable flanks (SWF), enabling Automatic Optical Inspection (AOI) to be employed. Packages with SWF are now a proven, accepted solution.

“The DFN package with side-wettable flanks is gaining significant traction with automotive manufacturers as it saves space and can be automatically inspected," said Malte Struck, Nexperia’s product manager for small signal MOSFETs. "Our new 175 °C parts are being used in under-the-hood applications, especially near the engine or gearbox. The unique offering of an automotive-grade MOSFET that is both qualified to 175 °C and which incorporates side-wettable flanks makes the DFN2020 additionally suitable for a wide range of medium-power automotive applications.”

Six 40 V and 60 V devices are available with the higher temperature rating and automotive approval, each with low RDS(on) of between 20 mΩ and 40 mΩ.
