Nexperia 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.
With these latest releases, Nexperia is further completing its portfolio of 175°C diodes and transistors which now covers all performance classes up to 15A. The family of 175°C products are available in packages ranging from leadless DFN to leaded SMD and clipbond FlatPower (CFP) and LFPAK packages (more info).
