USA: Fairchild Semiconductor optimizes the MOSFET and diode selection process by introducing a family of 100 V BoostPak devices that combines a MOSFET and diode in one package to replace discrete solutions currently used in LED TV / monitor backlight, LED lighting and DC-DC converter applications.
By integrating the MOSFET and diode into a single package, the FDD1600N10ALZD and the FDD850N10LD devices save board space, simplify assembly, lower bill of material (BOM) costs and improve reliability of the application.
The devices feature an N-channel MOSFET produced using Fairchild’s PowerTrench process that has been tailored to minimize the on-state resistance while maintaining superior switching performance. The NP diode is a hyperfast rectifier with low forward voltage drop and excellent switching performance. It has much lower leakage current than a Shottky diode, which improves system reliability in high temperature applications.
