Nexperia introduces 175°C diodes and transistors in SOT23 package
Published: 3 July 2019 - Rachael Morling
Nexperia has announced that key parts from its SOT23-packaged family of high-performance, general-purpose transistors and switching diodes are now fully-specified for operation up to 175°C degrees. Included in the range are industry-favourite high-speed switching diodes BAS16/21 and BC807/817 general purpose transistors.
The 175°C SOT23 devices also feature a 25% higher Ptot (total power dissipation) than basic 150°C rated parts. This enables customers to realise a high-temperature design for under-the-hood applications including gear boxes and motor drives, as well as LED lighting and other industrial uses. The parts are also qualified according to AEC-Q101 for high automotive reliability.
Mark Roeloffzen, vice president & general manager of Nexperia’s Bipolar Discretes Business Group, said: “Nexperia is first to market with a 175°C portfolio of small-signal diodes and transistors in SOT23 further expanding the range of options designers have for high-temperature circuits. This is fitting since this year we are celebrating the 50th anniversary of the SOT23 package, invented – as Philips – by Nexperia. We still innovate and lead this market, shipping more than 30 billion devices annually, and remain committed to the important SOT23 business.”
