AON7418 is the best-in-class 30V N-channel device implemented on AOS' proprietary AlphaMOS technology, with the lowest RDS(ON) in the market of similar package types. AlphaMOS technology improves RDS(ON) by 40% over the previous generation. The device provides power designers the flexibility in optimizing space, performance and cost.
"This new AlphaMOS 30V Technology device follows the already set benchmark by AOS for power density and performance," said Peter Wilson, Director of Low Voltage MOSFETs at AOS. "AON7418 enables designers to reduce power losses and increase performance in space-constrained applications."
AON7418 is in a halogen-free DFN 3.3x3.3 package and is 100% UIS and Rg tested.
