New MOSFETs are an industry standard for enhanced power density and efficiency

20-03-2024 | Infineon | Power

Motor drive applications take a leap forward with the launch of the Infineon Technologies AG OptiMOS 6 200V MOSFET product family. The new portfolio is created to provide optimal performance in applications such as e-scooters, micro-EVs, and E-forklifts. The improved conduction losses and switching behaviour for these new MOSFETs reduce the EMI and switching losses. This benefits various switching applications, including servers, telecom, ESS, audio, solar, etc. It also combines a wide safe operating area (SOA) and industry-leading R DS(on), resulting in a perfect fit for static switching applications such as battery management systems. With the introduction of the new product family, the company sets a new industry benchmark with increased power density, efficiency, and system reliability for its customers’ benefit.

The portfolio provides enhanced technical features compared to its predecessor, the OptiMOS 3. It features a 42% lower R DS(on), contributing to decreased conduction losses and increased output power. Regarding diode behaviour, the family significantly increases softness, more than three times that of the OptiMOS 3. The switching and EMI behaviours are significantly improved by up to 89% reduction in Q rr(typ). The technology also offers improvements in parasitic capacitance linearity (C oss and C rss), which decreases oscillation during switching and lowers voltage overshoot. A tighter V GS(th) spread and lower transconductance aid in MOSFET paralleling and current sharing, leading to more uniform temperatures and reducing the number of paralleled MOSFETs.

The products feature an improved SOA and are classified as MSL 1 according to J-STD-020. These RoHS-compliant, lead-free products align with current industry standards.

The products are available in various packages, which makes them ideal for a wide range of applications. This wide package portfolio includes the PQFN 3.3.x3.3, SuperSO8 5x6, TOLL, TO-220, D 2PAK-7P, as well as the D 2PAK-3P.
