New trench HEXFET power MOSFETs from International Rectifier utilize advanced processing techniques to achieve extremely low on-resistance per silicon area. This benefit, combined with the ruggedized device design that HEXFET Power MOSFETs are well known for, provides the designer with an extremely efficient and reliable device for use in a wide variety of applications. The new Micro8. package has half the footprint area of the standard SO-8. This makes the Micro8 an ideal device for applications where printed circuit board space is at a premium. The low profile (<1.1mm) of the Micro8 will allow it to fit easily into extremely thin application environments such as portable electronics and PCMCIA cards.
