Toshiba unveils next generation 600V planar MOSFET series

Toshiba Electronics Europe has launched a series of 600V planar MOSFETs known as “π-MOS IX”. The series is aimed at small to medium switching power supplies such as those found in notebook PCs, AC adapters, games consoles and lighting applications.

Featuring an optimised chip design, the π-MOS IX series can achieve up to 5dB lower peak EMI noise than the current generation (π-MOS VII series), while maintaining the same high level of efficiency.

The initial π-MOS IX series will include the TK1K9A60F, TK1K2A60F, TK750A60F and TK650A60F with RDS(ON) values ranging from 1,9Ohm down to 0,65Ohm . They have the same rated avalanche current and DC current (ID), making it simple and easy to upgrade existing MOSFETs.

The devices are housed in a standard TO-220SIS package and offer greater design freedom, making the task of designing-in MOSFETs simpler. Toshiba said that it will expand the π-MOS IX series with the addition of more 600V devices as well as 500V and 650V variants.
