Electrical Equipment & Systems

Load Switch offers low on-resistance, 4 A max continuous current.

March 28, 2014

Supplied in 2 x 2 mm, 8-pin DFN package with thermal pad, APE8937-HF-3 is controlled by on/off input and contains one N-channel MOSFET that can operate over 0.8–5.5 V input range and support continuous current up to 4 A. On-resistance is 22 mΩ from VIN=1.8 V to VIN=5.0 V, and 300 Ω on-chip load resistor is included for output quick discharge when switch is turned off. For power-sequencing, rise time is adjustable via external ceramic capacitor on CT pin, which also reduces inrush current. Read More

Power MOSFETs feature very low on-resistance.

February 27, 2014

Available in TO-263 and TO-220 packages, respectively, Models AP99T03GS-HF-3 and AP99T03GP-HF-3 feature low on-resistance of 2.5 mΩ, drain-source breakdown voltage of 30 V, and continuous drain current of 120 A. Model AP99T03GS-HF-3 is suited for commercial and industrial surface-mount applications, while Model AP99T03GP-HF-3 is intended for applications where small PCB footprint or attached heatsink is required. Both N-channel MOSFETs are halogen-free and RoHS-compliant. Read More

Current Mode Step-Up Converter offers adjustable output to 27 V.

February 18, 2014

Intended for small, low-power applications, APE1913-3 comes in RoHS-compliant and halogen-free TSOT-23-5 package, has 2.6–5.5 V input range, and automatically switches from PWM to PFM during light load conditions to increase efficiency. Nominal operating frequency is 1.2 MHz, internal soft-start minimizes inrush current and extends battery life, and internal power MOSFET promotes efficiency. Protection functions include UVLO, current limit, and thermal shutdown. Read More

Power MOSFETs suit DC-DC converter applications.

December 12, 2013

Available in 3 models, AP4034 Series N-Channel MOSFETs feature low typical gate charge of 15 nC. Model AP4034GMT-HF-3, housed in PMPAK5x6 package, offers max on-resistance of 8 mΩ and drain-source current rating of 44.3 A. Supplied in standard SO-8 package, Model AP4034GM-HF-3 offers max on-resistance of 9 mΩ and drain-source current of 13 A. Model AP4034GYT-HF-3 has same low max on-resistance of 9 mΩ, but with drain-source current of 15.5 A in 3 x 3 mm footprint. Read More

LDO Regulators have low quiescent current, 300 mA max output.

October 4, 2013

Featuring quiescent current of ~30 µA and output voltage accuracy of ±2%, APE8800A-HF-3 positive linear regulators can supply 300 mA output current with drop-out voltage of 250 mV. Current limit protection and thermal shutdown features are also standard, and LDOs can operate with low ESR ceramic output capacitors as small as 1 µF for stability. Available with fixed output voltages from 1.2–5 V, regulators come in RoHS-/REACH-compliant, halogen-free, 5-lead SOT-23-5 and TSOT-23-5 packages. Read More

Fully Protected LED Driver suits backlighting applications.

August 26, 2013

Step-up converter APE1612-3, capable of driving up to 8 white LEDs in series for backlighting applications, uses current mode, 1.2 MHz fixed frequency architecture to regulate LED current, which is set using external current sense resistor. While 300 mV feedback voltage reduces power loss and promotes efficiency, 200 Hz to 200 kHz range enables use in PWM dimming. Over-voltage, UVLO, current limiting, and thermal shutdown protection features are standard. Read More
