Fairchild Semiconductor and Infineon Technologies Expand Compatibility Partnership for Power MOSFETs, Providing Customers Supply Chain Security
News Release from:
08 February 2012
Fairchild Semiconductor and Infineon Technologies today announced the extension of their compatibility partnership to encompass Fairchild's 5x6mm power stage asymmetric dual MOSFET package. Fairchild's PowerTrench power stage dual asymmetric MOSFET modules are part of a comprehensive portfolio of advanced MOSFET technology that provides power designers with a wide range of solutions for mission critical high efficiency information processing designs.
This extended collaboration which began in 2010 and is intended to provide customers supply chain security while balancing the drive towards best-in-class efficiency and thermal performance in DC-DC buck conversion. It takes advantage of the expertise both companies offer in asymmetric dual MOSFETs which can handle over 30A and increase power density.
“We are pleased to have added these enhancements to our PowerTrench technology,” said Joe Montalbo, Fairchild’s Vice President and General Manager, Consumer, Communications and Industrial, Low Voltage. “This partnership with Infineon, along with the standardized pin-outs, helps to improve the value proposition of this product line and makes it more compelling to our customers.”
“Fairchild and Infineon have standardized the pin-out, providing customers a secure supply chain for their high efficiency design needs in the computing, telecom and server markets,” adds Richard Kuncic, Senior Director Low Voltage Power Conversion at Infineon Technologies. “This package alignment is staged to deliver performance leading products in a multi-source, industry standard package.”
Fairchild Semiconductor is focused on developing, manufacturing and distributing semiconductor solutions to a wide range of end-market customers. Fairchild’s focus on the power market, along with diverse end- market exposure and strong penetration into the growing Asian region provide the company with an excellent opportunity to provide customers the right solution for their design challenges.
