Besides providing superior arcing resistance, the TO-220FP wide creepage package also retains the superior electrical properties of the popular TO-220FP. Because the outer dimensions of the new package are similar to the existing TO-220FP, this simplifies the design-in while ensuring compliance with the established assembly processes. In fact, the TO-220FP wide creepage package was developed in collaboration with Korean customer SoluM, which is planning to use it for creating new power solutions that are more robust and cost-effective.
Other key features of the 1500 V super-junction MOSFET include 1.9 Ω on-resistance (max), total gate charge of 47 nC at VGS = 10 V and ID = 7 A, 100% avalanche tested, best figure of merit and zener protection. Currently the manufacturer is ramping up production of TO-220FP wide creepage power transistors to support a major global television manufacturer. As per the product release, the 1500 V STFH12N150K5 and 1200 V STFH12N120K5 super-junction MOSFETs will be qualified by the end of the third quarter.
