60-V MOSFET Delivers Greater Power Density

Vishay MOSFET

Vishay’s dual N-channel 60-V MOSFET delivers increased power density and efficiency for a range of applications, including battery management systems, plug-in and wireless chargers, DC/DC converters, and power supplies.

Vishay’s new Siliconix SiSF20DN common-drain dual N-channel 60-V MOSFET in a compact, thermally enhanced PowerPAK 1212-8SCD package is designed to increase power density and efficiency in battery management systems, plug-in and wireless chargers, DC/DC converters, and power supplies.

The package construction — two monolithically integrated TrenchFET Gen IV N-channel MOSFETs in a common drain configuration — also makes the MOSFET well-suited for bidirectional switching in 24-V systems and industrial applications, including factory automation, power tools, drones, motor drives, white goods, robotics, security/surveillance, and smoke alarms.

The SiSF20DN claims the industry’s lowest RSS(ON) in a 60-V common-drain device, down to 10 mΩ typical at 10 V, the lowest among 60-V devices in a 3 × 3-mm footprint, according to Vishay. This value represents a 42.5% improvement over the next best solution in this footprint size and is 89% lower than Vishay’s previous-generation devices, said Vishay. The result is reduced voltage drops across the power path and minimized power losses for increased efficiency.

In addition, for higher power density, the dual-MOSFET’s RS1-S2(ON) times area is 46.6% lower than the next best alternative MOSFET, even when including larger 6 × 5-mm solutions, said Vishay.

The SiSF20DN is 100% Rg- and UIS-tested, RoHS-compliant, and halogen-free. Samples and production quantities are available now, with lead times of 30 weeks for larger orders. Get a quote.

Rakon introduces VCSOs with High Frequency and Low Phase Noise Performance

Rakon VCSO

Rakon has launched a new product family, expanding its broad product offering further. The ‘RSV’ Voltage Controlled SAW Oscillator (VCSO) family, uniquely positions Rakon SAW technology in the market. The family’s advanced Surface Acoustic Wave technology enables the ultimate in performance for low voltage applications that require excellent phase noise performance at very high frequencies.

The RSV2522 series is ideal for the latest generation of high speed converters, which require a high frequency clock with low jitter. The RSV2522-800, RSV2522-1000, RSV2522-1600 and RSV2522-2000 generate frequencies of 800MHz, 1GHz, 1.6GHz and 2GHz respectively.

The series uses high performance SAW resonators to generate 800MHz and 1GHz frequency outputs, and each are combined with a frequency doubler to reach 1.6GHz and 2GHz frequencies, respectively. The VCSOs can be easily locked to a stable reference through a Phase Locked Loop system, or they can be used as a SAW clock without the need for external circuitry. The RSV2522 series has low power consumption since a single +5V power supply is required, and performance is guaranteed over the full industrial temperature range of -40 to +85°C.

Available in a 25 x 22 x 5 mm3 SMD package the RSV2522 series offers a noise floor as low as -172 dBc/Hz (for 1GHz output) and has an outstanding broadband jitter performance of below 10 fs.

MicroPIMS – a New Approach to Wireless Corrosion/Erosion Monitoring

micro PIMS

Sensor Networks’ microPIMS® is a fully wireless, non-intrusive, ultrasonic corrosion/erosion monitoring system. Powered by battery, it operates using long range (>1 mile/1.6Km) sub Gigi-Hertz wireless connectivity. Each microPIMS sensor is programmed to take readings at a user-defined specified time interval and send data to Sensor Networks proprietary webPIMS® software, a cloud-based back-end web portal for analysis, trending and more.

Use microPIMS® for:
  • Applications where frequent data is required to monitor corrosion/erosion rate issues.
  • Short- or long-term corrosion rate data is needed to monitor crude-slate changes or to correlate operational system updates.
  • Areas not conducive to manual UT thickness surveys.
  • Covering many discrete points with simple attachment.
  • Situations where quick and easy installations are required.
  • Easy installation (no welding required) and repositioning.
