Toshiba Electronics has released a dual MOSFET with high levels of ESD protection. The new SSM6N813R is intended for use in rugged automotive applications, including use as a driver IC for headlight LEDs, which require a high withstand voltage and a small footprint.
A maximum drain-source voltage (VDSS) of 100V ensures that the SSM6N813R is suitable for headlight applications requiring multiple LEDs, a capability supported by the device’s high levels ESD immunity.
Fabricated using the latest process, the SSM6N813R has a maximum power dissipation of 1.5W and offers efficient operation through low on-resistance (RDS(ON)) of just 112mΩ. The devices can support drain currents (ID) up to 3.5A.
The dual MOSFETs are packaged in a tiny TSOP6F package that measures just 2.9x2.8x0.8mm, the same size as a SOT23 package and giving a footprint that is 70% smaller than that of an SOP8 package.
The device is in mass production.
