Phoenix, Arizona - July 20, 1999 - In a move to provide designers of power management functions a significant space savings, Semiconductor Components Group (SCG) has introduced a new "FETKY(tm)" device that combines a P-Channel MOSFET and a 3A Schottky rectifier in one space saving SO-8 package.
Called the MMDFS3P303 FETKY, the new multi-chip device provides significant space savings which allows increased design flexibility, and significantly reduces component assembly time and cost while satisfying a requirement of the growing wireless market for smaller end products. This single value added solution combines a small footprint with high efficiency components to extend battery life and maximize power handling in portable products such as battery chargers, PCMCIA cards, notebook computers and inkjet printers.
Designed using Motorola's high-cell-density HDTMOS' process, the MMDFS3P303 FETKY incorporates a P-channel 30V, ultra low Rds(ON) MOSFET with a low forward drop, low leakage Schottky Barrier Rectifier in a single surface mount package. Independent pinouts for the TMOS(tm) and Schottky die allow designers the flexibility to use a single component for both switching and synchronous rectification functions in a wide variety of applications critical to the portable market. Additionally, the MMDFS3P303 is optimized for DC-DC conversion and its enhanced switching capability makes switching in Power Management applications possible, if the Schottky in placed in series with the MOSFET.
"SCG recognizes the significance and cost impact of multiple die in single packages to the Portable and Wireless markets and has addressed the need with the announcement of the MMDFS3P303" said Scott Delaney, Director of Marketing for SCG.
Previously introduced FETKY products include the MMDFS6N303, which combines the same Schottky Rectifier as the MMDFS3P303, and an N-channel 30V low Rds(ON) MOSFET and the MMDFS2P102.
The MMDFS3P303 P-Channel FETKY is currently offered in a multi-chip surface mount SO-8. Samples and production quantities are currently available and pricing for the MMDFS3P303 FETKY starts at $0.86 for quantities of 10K.
