New bipolar family comes in super-small-size package to saves space in smart phones
As strong consumer demand drives increasing functionality in ever smaller form factors of handheld gadgets and other portable computing devices, this new family is expected to be used in a wide range of electronic products, including cameras, portable multimedia players, Bluetooth headsets and tablet PCs, as well as smart phones.
Offering a tenfold higher power density, the new NPN and PNP bipolar transistors come in the DFN1006 package, which has a 0.6 mm2 footprint - 13 times smaller than SOT23 leaded package - and an off-board height of 0.4 mm, which is even lower than the industry standard. In addition to being significantly smaller than the equivalent leaded packages, such as SOT323, SOT523 and SOT723, these new devices offer superior thermal performance.
These small-signal bipolar transistors offer 15 to 50 V capability and are able to operate in high switching speed applications for frequencies up to 250 MHz, and can handle up to 1 A peak current, making the devices ideal for handling load-switching applications. The family also delivers typical On-resistance of less than 300 mohm at 0.5 A, reducing conduction losses.
Available on 10,000-piece reels, pricing starts at $0.06 each in quantities of 10,000.
