  MarketersMedia: Toshiba Electronics Launches Miniature 600V Superjunction
                                Power MOSFETs

Small outline, low-profile DTMOS-IV devices with ultra-low RDS(ON) save space
and reduce losses in high-speed switching designs.

Düsseldorf, Germany, October 15th, 2013 - /MarketersMedia/Toshiba Electronics
Europe (TEE) has announced that its next-generation superjunction (SJ)
DTMOS-IV power MOSFET technology is being made available for the first time in
small outline, low-profile DFN packaging. New 600V DTMOS-IV MOSFETs in a DFN
package will be ideal for high-speed switching in power supplies, lighting
ballasts and other applications requiring a space-saving alternative to more
conventional D2PAK and DPAK devices.

Offering current ratings from 9.7A to over 30A, the new devices in the TKxV60W
family of 600V  MOSFETs have  ultra-low on resistance  (RDS(ON)) ratings  from 
0.38?  to  just  0.098?.  A   leading  RDS(ON)*Qg  figure  of  merit   ensures 
high-efficiency switching  while  a  low output  capacitance  (Coss)  supports 
optimised  operation  at  light  loads.  Each  device  also  incorporates   an 
additional sense pin for direct driver connection.

Toshiba's DTMOS-IV process delivers MOSFETs that exhibit a better  temperature 
coefficient of  RDS(ON)  than  alternative  devices.  This  allows  efficiency 
benefits to be realised even during high-temperature operation. As with  other 
devices in Toshiba's DTMOS-IV  family, the new DFN  MOSFETs have an  optimised 
gate-drain capacitance (Cgd) that  delivers improved dv/dt switching  control. 
Support for lower dv/dt ratings also  helps to reduce the tendency to  ringing 
in high-speed switching circuitry.

At 8mm x 8mm the DFN package has  an outline that is 20% smaller than a  D2PAK 
package. A  profile  of  only  0.85mm  is almost  three  times  lower  than  a 
traditional DPAK and over five times lower than a D2PAK.

Toshiba uses  the  deep  trench  process in  its  DTMOS-IV  fourth  generation 
single-epitaxial  superjunction  MOSFET.  This  allows  closer  trench   pitch 
compared to the third-generation (multi-epitaxial)  process, leading to a  30% 
better on-state resistance for a given die area.
