Next-Generation TrenchFET® Gen IV 30 V N-Channel Power MOSFETs Feature On-Resistance Down to 1.0 mΩ at 10 V and 1.35 mΩ at 4.5 V

Vishay Intertechnology, Inc. (NYSE: VSH) today introduced the first devices in its next-generation TrenchFET® Gen IV family of 30 V n-channel power MOSFETs. Utilizing a new high-density design, the SiRA00DP, SiRA02DP, SiRA04DP, and SiSA04DN offer industry-low on-resistance down to 1.35 mΩ at 4.5 V and low Miller charge, Qgd, down to 1.8 nC in the PowerPAK® SO-8 and 1212-8 packages.

The new Vishay Siliconix TrenchFET IV power MOSFETs incorporate technological improvements in silicon design, wafer processing, and device packaging to deliver a number of benefits to designers of today’s power electronics systems. With a reduction in on-resistance times silicon area of over 60 % compared to previous-generation devices, the SiRA00DP is able to demonstrate extremely low RDS(on) values of 1.0 mΩ at 10 V and an industry-best 1.35 mΩ at 4.5 V. For designers, the MOSFETs’ low on-resistance translates into lower conduction losses for reduced power consumption and higher efficiency.

TrenchFET Gen IV MOSFETs offer a new structure that utilizes a very high-density design without significantly increasing the gate charge, overcoming a problem often associated with high cell count devices. The MOSFETs released today offer low total gate charge and therefore low on-resistance times gate charge figures of merit (FOM) down to 56 nC-Ω at 4.5 V for the SiRA04DP.

The SiRA00DP, SiRA02DP, and SiRA04DP provide increased system efficiency and lower temperatures in the 6.15 mm by 5.15 mm PowerPAK® SO-8 package, while the SiSA04DN offers similar efficiency with a third of the size in the 3.30 mm by 3.30 mm PowerPAK 1212-8 package. All of the devices released today offer a very low Qgd/Qgs ratio of 0.5 or less. This lower ratio can help to prevent shoot-thru by lowering gate induced voltages.

The SiRA00DP, SiRA02DP, SiRA04DP, and SiSA04DN are optimized for high power density DC/DC converters, synchronous rectification, synchronous buck converters, and OR-ing applications. Typical end products include switch mode power supplies, voltage regulator modules (VRMs), POLs, telecom bricks, PCs, and servers.

The TrenchFET Gen IV devices are 100 % Rg and UIS tested. They are halogen-free according to the IEC 61249-2-21 definition and RoHS-compliant.

Vishay Siliconix was the industry’s first supplier to introduce Trench power MOSFETs. The company’s TrenchFET intellectual property includes numerous patents, including fundamental technology patents dating from the early 1980s. Each new generation of TrenchFET technology yields products that raise the bar for power MOSFET performance in a wide range of computing, communications, consumer electronics, and many other applications.

TURCK is now offering the option to completely shield M8 picofast ® cordsets by connecting a braided shield directly to the coupling nut. This provides a cost-effective and reliable connection with 100 percent cable and connector shielding, which protects against electromagnetic and radio frequency interference.

The 3 and 4-pin cordsets are available with flexlife ® PVC or PUR jacketed cable. All connectors deliver IEC IP 67 protection.

The M8 picofast line, like most TURCK cordsets, provides male or female, straight and right angle connectors, standard and custom lengths, and pigtails or extensions. Fully encapsulated mating receptacles are also offered, completing the system.

Banner Engineering DF-G3 Discrete Fiber Amplifier Features World-Class Long Range Sensing Capability

Banner Engineering introduces its DF-G3 discrete long-range fiber amplifier with dual digital displays for use with plastic and glass fiber optic assemblies. Featuring increased sensing power, the DF-G3 can sense more than 3 meters (10 ft.) with opposed mode fibers or more than 1 meter (3 ft.) with diffuse mode fibers. The extra power provides increased detection reliability for dark targets at long range and enhanced detection sensitivity when using specialty fiber assemblies for large area and small part detection applications.

The DF-G3 is available with a single discrete output or two dual discrete outputs. The dual discrete outputs can be independently taught to trigger at different intensity values, which is ideal for correct part-in-place or error-proofing, bottle down, and edge guiding applications.

“We developed the DF-G3 fiber amplifier to meet our customers’ need to precisely detect smaller targets at longer ranges” said Dennis Smith, Senior Marketing Manager, Banner Engin…

TURCK’s BL Compact Family Collects Analog and Digital Signals at the Source

TURCK’s BL Compact system is a revolutionary modular I/O solution for collecting a variety of signals in a single, rugged node on a network. Rather than routing all signals through a control cabinet, this device makes it possible to obtain analog, digital, thermocouple, RTD, serial, RFID or a mixture of signal types in a compact, machine-mountable device over DeviceNet™, CANopen and PROFIBUS ®.

Up to two signals types can be combined in any combination in the BL Compact system, including RFID and analog, digital and serial—and more. The BL Compact system may be customized to suit a user’s specific needs, so that devices may be added to an existing network and signals may be gathered on the machine without an enclosure. This drop-in solution can be used to connect up to 16 devices—drastically reducing the time it takes to run wires for each device back to the control cabinet and the potential for wiring errors.

The BL Compact system is currently available with four, eight or 16 ports i…
