New Power MOSFETs Compact, Durable Electrical Appliances

Infineon Technologies recently extended its StrongIRFET Power MOSFET family. The Logic Level StrongIRFETs can be driven directly from a microcontroller, thus saving space and cutting costs. Additionally, the MOSFETs are highly rugged and thus help lengthen the service life of the electronic devices, such as DIY power tools (e.g., cordless drills) that have to be handy and durable.  Infineon Logic_Level_StrongIRFET

The StrongIRFET family enables high energy efficiency in electric appliances. With the logic level extension, Infineon meets the market’s demand for StrongIRFETs that do not require a stand-alone driver. In the logic level variant the necessary gate-source voltage is reduced to 4.5 V. Thus, you can directly connect the MOSFET with the microcontroller in many applications.

The characteristic performance features include: low on-state resistance (0.52 mΩ typical and 0.97 mΩ maximum) for reduced conduction losses, high current carrying capability for increased power capability, and rugged silicon all make for high system reliability.
