Fairchild 100V BoostPak Solution Provides Improved Reliability and Reduces System Costs in LED Applications

Fairchild Semiconductor, a leading global supplier of high performance power and mobile semiconductor solutions, optimizes the MOSFET and diode selection process by introducing a family of 100 V BoostPak devices that combines a MOSFET and diode in one package to replace discrete solutions currently used in LED TV / monitor backlight, LED lighting and DC-DC converter applications.

By integrating the MOSFET and diode into a single package, the FDD1600N10ALZD and FDD850N10LD devices save board space, simplify assembly, lower bill of material (BOM) costs and improve reliability of the application.

The devices feature an N-channel MOSFET produced using Fairchild’s PowerTrench® process that has been tailored to minimize the on-state resistance while maintaining superior switching performance. The NP diode is a hyperfast rectifier with low forward voltage drop and excellent switching performance. It has much lower leakage current than a Shottky diode, which improves system reliability in high temperature applications.
