NEXPERIA BUK9M20-60EL single N-channel 60 V, 13 mOhm logic level MOSFET in LFPAK33 packaging joins portfolio of application specific MOSFETs (ASFETs) for automobile airbag applications. Device uses firm’s enhanced safe operating area (SOA) technology that has been tailored to provide exceptional transient linear mode performance, a key performance metric in airbag applications. Product achieves this performance in new LFPAK33 packaging which uses 84% less board space when compared to older DPAK packaging, while still maintaining robustness.
