40V/100A Power MOSFETs Featuring the Industry's Best Power Conversion Performance (FOM=21)

ROHM has recently announced the development of a new series of 40V power MOSFETs optimized for 24V input DC/DC converters in industrial devices and automotive applications. Thirteen different models are available in six package types and a range of currents, from 9A to 100A, for broad compatibility. In addition, a unique new structure is utilized that improves power conversion efficiency by 30% compared with existing products, contributing to significantly lower power consumption in the DC/DC power circuits of high-power devices that require large current.

In recent years, devices have become increasingly power efficient due to improvements in the power conversion efficiency of DC/DC power supply circuits. As a result, power MOSFETs that play a significant role in power conversion performance are required to operate at high efficiency in order to minimize loss.

ROHM has previously developed numerous intermediate power class high-efficiency MOSFETs for consumer appliances. However, the increase in large-scale, high-power industrial devices and automotive applications with 24V input drives demand for highly efficient power MOSFETs that can handle up to 40V in high-current devices.

ROHM's latest power MOSFETs provide both low gate capacitance and low ON-resistance through a proprietary low-capacitance structure and new 'trench-type field plate' design. As a result, FOM, a performance index used for DC/DC converter power MOSFETs, is reduced significantly compared with ROHM's conventional products, ensuring industry-leading switching performance. This makes them ideal for high frequency applications and enables the use of smaller peripheral components.

In addition, to ensure optimum performance and reliability in synchronous rectification circuits, ROHM conducts 100% UIS (low-load avalanche tolerance) testing. Going forward, ROHM will continue developing transistor products to meet customer needs by leveraging advanced proprietary process technologies.

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 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.
