SQJQ480E: The New Automotive-Grade Power MOSFET from Vishay

By Sarah RonkoskeJune 1, 2017

Every year, Vishay Intertechnology — one of the world's largest manufacturers of discrete semiconductors and passive electronic components — puts together a showcase of some of the best products from their broad portfolio. The Vishay Super 12 is a curated selection of a dozen key semiconductor and passive components that feature new and improved technologies to enhance the performance of end-products and systems.

This five-part series will feature five of Vishay’s 12 “super” products for 2017. In part one of the series, we’ll discuss SQJQ480E TrenchFET® Gen IV MOSFET.

The newly released SQJQ480E MOSFET belongs to the next-generation TrenchFET® Gen IV family of 30 V n-channel power MOSFETs introduced by Vishay/Siliconix. A result of major technological improvements in silicon design, wafer processing, and device packaging, these power MOSFETs deliver outstanding benefits to OEMs and designers of today’s power electronics systems. The TrenchFET® Gen IV family minimizes on-resistance times silicon area of over 60% compared to previous-generation devices, and achieves the best-in-class resistance for reduced power consumption and higher efficiency.

Key Features of Vishay’s SQJQ480E MOSFET

The SQJQ480E MOSFET is an N-Channel 80V (D-S) 150A (Tc) 136W (Tc) Surface Mount in a PowerPAK® 8x8L package. The PowerPAK® 8x8L reaches the best RDS, Gate Charge (Qg) and Output Charge) QOSS by minimizing the package resistance and parasitic resistance.

The 3mΩ, 175°C MOSFET is automotive grade and comes with a low profile height of 1.9 mm. It is AEC-Q101 qualified and is 100 percent Rg and UIS tested. It is RoHS compliant, halogen free, lead (Pb) free and offers the following features and benefits:

  • TrenchFET® power MOSFET
  • AEC-Q101 qualified
  • 100% Rg and UIS tested
  • Fully lead (Pb)-free device
  • Low profile height: 1.9 mm

Major Applications of the New SQJQ480E MOSFET

The application areas for this product include the automotive and transportation segments, while it performs particularly well in applications involving intralogistics.

As the leading global distributor for Vishay, WPG Americas stocks and supports the complete catalog of products featuring in Vishay Super 12 as well as its full line of discrete semiconductors (diodes, rectifiers, transistors, and optoelectronics and selected ICs) and passive electronic components (resistors, capacitors, inductors, sensors, and transducers).
