Glyn, distributor of high-end microelectronics, offers the new RJM0603JSC MOSFET from Renesas. Intended especially for the automotive industry, the IC combines three N- and three P-channel MOSFETs with 60V drain to source voltage in a tiny HSOP20 package.

With the RJM0603JSC, Renesas introduces a compact and powerful MOSFET six-pack. The IC is AEC-Q101 qualified and thus meets today’s automotive requirements. Since space is a scarce resource in modern cars with their multitude of functions, Power-MOSFETs require ever smaller SMD packages that are nevertheless extremely powerful and robust with regard to their electrical and thermal properties. The new Power-MOSFET enables engineers to construct smaller automotive control units with higher power, e.g. for engine control.

With the proven “6in1” technology, it is possible to integrate six MOSFETs into the HSOP20 package with a footprint of 16 mm x 14 mm. The SMD package houses three N-channel and three P-channel MOSFETs with a drain to source voltage of 60V. Compared to six single components in a TO-252 package, the RJM0603JSC’s HSOP20 package saves about 35 % space. This results in minimizing board space as well as cost.

The drain current is 20 A with a RDS(ON) of 20 m? in N-channel respectively 40 m? in P-channel. Furthermore, the component is specified with a peak current of 80 A and an avalanche current of 20 A. It is capable of 4.5V gate drive.

Samples are immediately available at Glyn.
