By Vishay/Siliconix 109


The ThunderFET® from Vishay/Siliconix has been designed to offer excellent efficiency in high density power supplies and at the same time be compatible with all common MOSFET control circuits.

This unique design feature allows for easy device selection without the need to be concerned about the type of MOSFET gate driver that is being used. From a technical perspective the ThunderFET® provides the lowest conduction losses at gate voltages down to 4.5 V without increasing gate driver switching losses.

  • 5 V LogicLevel to reduce gate driver power losses
  • Low CDSS "A" version ~ 40% improvement
  • Over 60% RDS(ON) reduction from TrenchFET
  • Up to 50% QGO reduction comparing to TrenchFET at similar RDS(ON)
  • Telecommunications bricks
  • Synchronous rectification for server
  • POE (Power over Ethernet)
  • Renewable energy
  • Motor control and drive
  • Telecom DC-DC
  • Off-line UPSDC-AC inverters
  • Boost converters for LED lighting
