SuperFET III Family of 650-V N-channel MOSFETs

Fairchild Semiconductor recently introduced the SuperFET III family of 650-V N-channel MOSFETs, which are well suited for telecom equipment, electric vehicle (EV) chargers, solar products, and more. The SuperFET III MOSFET family combines reliability, low EMI, high efficiency, and superior thermal performance. Furthermore, its various package options give you greater flexibility when dealing with space-constrained designs.

The SuperFET III has the lowest Rdson in any easy drive version of a Super Junction MOSFET. It is has 3× better single pulse Avalanche Energy (EAS) performance than its closest competitor. Such advantages make it useful for industrial applications such as solar inverters and EV chargers.

The SuperFET III MOSFET family is now available in multiple package and parametric options.

ON Semiconductor Acquires Fairchild Semiconductor

ON Semiconductor recently acquired Fairchild Semiconductor for $2.4 billion. Fairchild develops semiconductor solutions for mobile and power designs.

“The acquisition of Fairchild is a transformative step in our quest to become the premier supplier of power management and analog semiconductor solutions for a wide range of applications and end-markets,” said Keith Jackson, president and CEO of ON Semiconductor, in a press statement. “Fairchild provides us a plat-form to aggressively expand our profitability in a highly fragmented industry. With the addition of Fairchild, our industry leading cost structure has further improved in a significant manner and we are now well positioned to generate substantial shareholder value as we integrate operations of the two companies.”
