Omron Electronic Components Europe has launched what it believes to be the world’s smallest MOSFET relay that has a footprint of 2.9mm2 but is capable of handling 1.5A. Created to help designers of test and communications equipment and other applications achieve the minimum possible PCB size, the G3VM-31QR MOSFET relay is 17% smaller than alternative devices.
The S-VSON device has overall dimensions of 2.0x1.65x1.45mm achieved using a 3-stack chip on chip structure.
The company claims that the G3VM-31QR offers significantly enhanced performance compared to alternate solutions in its class. For example, it’s on-resistance is 0.10Ω. Despite its small size, it can handle a continuous load current of 1.5A at 30VAC or DC and offers a wide temperature range of -40 to 110°C. In addition, it boasts a dielectric strength of 500V between input and output.
