Nexperia extends LFPAK56D MOSFET line-up with AEC-Q101-qualified half-bridge package

Nexperia, the expert in essential semiconductors, today announced a series
of half-bridge (high side & low side) automotive MOSFETs constructed in the
space-saving LFPAK56D package format. The half-bridge configuration of two
MOSFETS is a standard building block for many automotive applications
including motor drives and DC/DC converters. The new package provides a
half-bridge solution in one device, occupying 30% lower PCB area compared to
dual MOSFETs for 3-phase motor control topologies due to the removal of PCB
tracks, whilst permitting simple automated optical inspection (AOI) during
production. The LFPAK56D half-bridge utilises existing high volume LFPAK56D
assembly processes with proven automotive reliability. The package format
uses flexible leads to improve overall reliability, and an internal copper
clip connection between the MOSFETs simplifies PCB designs and brings a plug
and play style solution with exceptional current handling capability of 98
A.

Typically, in a half-bridge arrangement, the PCB connection between the
source of the high side MOSFET and the drain of the low side MOSFET can
create a significant amount of parasitic inductance. However, with its
internal clip connection, the LFPAK56D half-bridge package achieves 60 %
less inductance.

The new LFPAK56D half-bridge MOSFETs launched are the BUK7V4R2-40H and the
BUK9V13-40H. Both utilise the highly robust Trench 9 automotive silicon
process technology, are rated at 40 V and are verified at twice the
automotive AEC-Q101 specification in key tests. RDS(on) of the devices
measures 4.2 mOhm (BUK7V4R2) and 13 mOhm (BUK9V13).

The AEC-Q101-qualified Nexperia LFPAK56D half-bridge package suits a broad
range of 3-phase automotive powertrain applications such as fuel and water
pumps, motor control and DC/DC power conversion, occupying 30% lower PCB
area and 60% lower parasitic inductance for high performance switching
applications. The new technology has already seen success with design-in and
commitment from major automotive customers.
