Alpha and Omega Intros Low-Draw 8V Power MOSFETs
Sunnyvale, CA — Alpha and Omega Semiconductor Limited (AOS) has added the first 8V devices to its Low Voltage Power MOSFET product line. The AON2400 and AON2401 feature ultra-low on-resistance rated at 1.2VGS to extend battery life in low voltage applications. The combined benefits of longer battery life and compact form factor make these new devices suitable for space-constrained portable applications such as smart phones, tablet PCs, UltraBook computers, eReaders, digital cameras and portable music players.

The two new devices are reportedly the best-in-class 8V devices available in the market today. They are housed in a thermally enhanced DFN2x2 power package and are available in N-Channel and P-Channel versions, respectively. The ultra-low on-resistance is guaranteed down to very low gate rating of VGS = 1.2V, which helps designers to simplify drive circuitry, lower power consumption and improve battery life. The compact footprint (2 x 2mm) and ultra-thin (0.6mm) profile of the thermally enhanced DFN2x2 enables more efficient solutions in space-constrained applications.

According to the company, the new 1.2VGS rated MOSFETs utilize the company's proprietary AlphaMOS (alphaMOS(TM)) technology, which adds exceptional performance for load and battery switches in portable applications. Both devices are available in the halogen-free DFN2x2 package.
