Malvern, Pa.Vishay Intertechnology Inc. has released a 20-V p-channel TrenchFET power MOSFET in a MICRO FOOT chip-scale package that features the industry's smallest footprint and on-resistance ratings down to 1.2 V.
With an ultra-compact 1.2-mm x 1.0-mm footprint, the Si8445DB is 20% smaller than the industry's next-smallest device, while offering the same slim 0.59-mm profile, according to Vishay. The Si8445DB offers a low on-resistance range from 0.495 ohms at 1.2-V VGS to 0.084 at 4.5-V VGS. The low on-resistance rating at 1.2 V reduces the need for level shift circuitry, thus saving space and power in portable electronics designs.
Typical applications will include low-threshold load switching, charger switching, and battery management in portable devices such as cell phones, PDAs, digital cameras, MP3 players, and smart phones.
Pricing: For U.S. delivery in 100,000-piece quantities is $0.15.
Availability: Samples and production quantities are available now, with lead times of 10 to 12 weeks for larger orders.
