Future Electronics Promotes the Self Protecting MOSFETs from Diodes
Pointe Claire, Quebec (postafreepressrelease) October 29, 2015 - Future Electronics, a global leading distributor of electronic components, promotes the self-protecting MOSFETs from Diodes Incorporated, delivering improved reliability in harsh environment automotive applications.
Power semiconductors such as standard MOSFETs have been proven to be insufficiently rugged for many automotive applications. Inductive spikes and load dumps are transients that require either larger MOSFETs or external clamps to absorb the energy that would otherwise destroy the MOSFET. Both of these options add to the cost and complexity of discrete designs.
Self-protected MOSFETs, as developed by Diodes Incorporated, address this issue with monolithic circuit topologies that incorporate clamping and other protection features to provide a more reliable and lower cost/smaller size solution for driving relays, LEDs and other inductive loads.
To help cope further with transients, self-protected MOSFETs, such as the ZXMS6004FFQ from Diodes Incorporated, utilize a fully protected topology that incorporates over-temperature and overcurrent protection circuits. This device leads the industry by using a small form factor SOT-23 package, 6x smaller than comparable SOT223-packaged parts.
With built-in protection features, self-protected MOSFETs provide a cost effective solution for switching loads in a wide variety of automotive applications.
