The LFPAK package is AEC-Q101-qualified for automotive applications.

According to Nexperia, the company has launched the industry’s first family of P-channel MOSFETs in the LFPAK56 (Power-SO8) package. AEC-Q101 qualified for automotive applications, the new devices are an ideal replacement for DPAK MOSFETs, offering a reduction in footprint of over 50% while maintaining suitable performance levels, according to the company. The new products are available in 30 V – 60 V, with RDS(on) down to 10 mΩ (30 V)

The LFPAK package, featuring a copper-clip structure, was designed by Nexperia. According to the company, it is proven to be more reliable than is required by the AEC standard, exceeding key reliability test by 2x, while increasing board level reliability due to the package construction. Previously, only N-channel devices have been available in LFPAK packaging. Now Nexperia has extended its LFPAK56 portfolio to also include P-channel options.

P-channel MOSFETs in LFPAK56 are available now.
