Trench Schottky Rectifiers from Nexperia

The new Trench Schottky rectifiers from Nexperia are AEC-Q101 approved devices that combine low switching losses and increased safe operating area for fast switching applications. These new components feature excellent switching behavior and leading thermal performance. Available in Nexperia’s Clip Bond FlatPower (CFP) packages that have a much smaller footprint than SMA/SMB/SMC components, these rectifiers are rated at up to 100 V and 20 A.

The Trench technology that these components come with results in low leakage and also reduces the charge, Qrr, stored in the device. This helps the Trench Schottky rectifiers in delivering extremely fast switching, cutting both the switching losses of the rectifier and the losses that are induced in the MOSFET in the same commutation cell.

The company is offering 32 devices from 40 V to 100 V and up to 15 A in volume production. Also, 17 parts including the 20A types are sampling. These PMEGxxxTx devices are housed in thermally-efficient Clip Bond FlatPower packages CFP3/5/15(B). Featuring a solid copper clip, the thermal resistance of these packages is reduced and the transfer of heat into the ambient environment is optimized, thus allowing small and compact PCB designs.
