ON Semiconductor Expands Power MOSFET Portfolio with 12 New Devices for Notebook and Desktop Computers

Power MOSFETs optimize dc-dc conversion and reduce power losses at critical current levels in CPU, GPU, and system rail dc-dc conversion, for both low and high side switching

Phoenix, Ariz. – Feb. 15, 2008 – ON Semiconductor (Nasdaq: ONNN), a leading global supplier of power management solutions has introduced 12 new power MOSFET devices that optimize dc-dc conversion and reduce power losses at critical current levels. These MOSFETs are ideal for CPU, GPU, and system rail dc-dc conversion - for both low and high side switching in computing applications such as notebooks PCs, desktop PCs and gaming boxes.

These new 25 volt (V) and 30 V devices are single and dual N-channel MOSFETs offering lower RDS(on), that minimizes power dissipation. The devices also provide low gate charge and low gate charge ratio that reduces conduction and switching losses. These performance features combine to make the power subsystem more efficient.

“When developing these new MOSFETs we focused on helping our customers meet their specific computing power management needs,” said Paul Leonard, vice president of the MOSFET Division for ON Semiconductor. “We plan to continue to expand our industry-leading MOSFET portfolio, specifically for advancing computing and portable applications. Combined with ON Semiconductor’s advanced dual-edge controllers, our MOSFETs enable customers to implement complete power subsystems using active components from a single global source.”
