Automotive MOSFETs in tiny 5x6 mm dual-side cooling package

ST has extended its offering of AEC-Q101 MOSFETs with the introduction of two 40 V devices in the advanced PowerFLAT™ 5x6 dual-side cooling (DSC) package with wettable flanks. The STLD200N4F6AG and STLD125N4F6AG, with a maximum on-resistance of 1.5 mΩ and 3.0 mΩ respectively, ensure high efficiency and help simplify system thermal management. The 0.8 mm-high PowerFLAT 5x6 DSC retains the footprint and thermally efficient bottom-side design of the standard wettable flank package, while it exposes the top-side source electrode to further enhance heat dissipation. This allows a higher current rating that increases power density, enabling designers to build smaller ECUs without trading off functionality, performance, or reliability.

Power MOSFET Basics

mosfet circuit
MOSFET circuit symbol

MOSFET stands for Metal Oxide Semiconductor Field Effect Transistor. It's a voltage controlled device with 3 terminals:

  • Gate (electrically insulated from the semiconductor)
  • Drain
  • Source

When a voltage applied between the Gate and the Source reaches a certain threshold (VGS(th) or threshold G-S voltage), the device is able to support current conduction between the Drain and the Source (ID or drain current).

MOSFET simplified structure

When a voltage applied between the Gate and the Source is below VGS(th), the device will withstand a voltage up to BVDSS (or breakdown voltage).

MOSFETs can be used as a signal amplifier (linear operation) or as a switch in power applications.

MOSFET parameters

Like many other types of semiconductor power switches, the main parameters of a MOSFET, usually available in most datasheets, are:

  • RDS(on) (on-state resistance): electrical resistance when the device is set in on state. The lower is RDS(on), the lower is the conduction loss due to power dissipation when the current is flowing.
  • BVDSS (breakdown voltage): maximum drain-to-source voltage that the device is able to sustain when in off state.
  • QG (total gate charge): amount of electric charge required to the gate driver to turn on/off the device itself. QG impacts directly the efficiency (the lower, the better).

The product of RDS(on) and QG is known as the MOSFET Figure of Merit (FOM).

Other important parameters are intrinsic capacitances that can affect the switching times and voltage spikes, and body drain diode when device is used as power diode, like in synchronous free-wheeling operation mode.

Main types of power MOSFETs

MOSFETs can be of different types, including:

N-channel enhancement-mode MOSFETs are the most popular type used in power switching circuits because of their low RDS(on) (on-state resistance) compared to P-channel MOSFETs.
