IR's AUIRF8736M2 Automotive DirectFET ® 2 Power MOSFET Delivers Increased Power Density While Reducing Overall System Size and Cost
EL SEGUNDO, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- International Rectifier, IR® (NYS: IRF) , a world leader in power management technology, today announced the introduction of the AUIRF8736M2 DirectFET®2 power MOSFET for heavy load automotive applications including electric power steering, braking systems and pumps that require superior power density in a compact footprint.
Leveraging IR's benchmark COOLiRFET™ silicon technology, the 40V AUIRF8736M2 offers a 40% improvement in on-state resistance (Rds(on)) compared to previous generation devices to help minimize conduction losses. The dual-side cooling Medium Can DirectFET®2 power package delivers excellent thermal performance and low parasitic inductance.
"Combining the performance of the COOLiRFET™ silicon with the DirectFET®2package, the AUIRF8736M2 delivers a 40% Rds(on) improvement in the same footprint, or equivalent performance to a Large Can device in a 50% smaller package reducing overall system size and cost for automotive applications," said Jifeng Qin, Product Manager, Automotive MOSFETs, IR's Automotive Products Business Unit.
The device is qualified according to AEC-Q101 standards, features an environmentally-friendly 100% lead-free package and RoHS compliant bill of materials, and is part of IR's automotive quality initiative targeting zero defects.
