Nexperia offers AEC-Q101-compliant discrete devices to save space

The leadless DFN packages with side-wettable flanks (SWF) are space-saving and rugged components, says the company.

The AEC-Q101 devices include the BC817QBH-Q and BC807QBH-Q series 45V, 500mA NPN/PNP general purpose transistors in DFN1110D-3. There are also general purpose Schottky diodes, the BAT32LS-Q and BAT42LS-Q, offered in a DFN1006BD-2 package.

Other additions are the BAS21LS-Q high-speed switching diode in DFN1006BD-2 package, the PDTA143, PDTA114, PDTA124 and PDTA144EQB-Q series 50V 100mA PNP resistor-equipped transistor (RET) family in a DFN1110D-3 package.

There is also the 2N7002KQB, a 60V N-channel trench MOSFET and the BSS84AKQB  50V, P-channel trench MOSFET in a DFN1110D-3 package.

Leadless DFN packages are up to 90% smaller than SOT23 packages which reduces the amount of board space required in space-constrained vehicles. The side-wettable flank offers reliable automated optical inspection (AOI) of solder joint quality, adds the company. Nexperia says its DFN packages deliver excellent thermal performance with high Ptot and also claims they are the most rugged in the industry passing extended lifetime and reliability tests.

“More than 460 different high-volume devices are available in the recently released DFN1412D-3, DFN1110D-3, and DFN1006BD-2 packages,” says Mark Roeloffzen, senior vice president and general manager of Nexperia’s Bipolar Discretes Business Group.

He believes that the miniature packages enables engineers to make designs future-proof. “The new technology has already seen success with design-in and commitment from major Tier 1 automotive suppliers,” he adds.

Samples and production quantities are available today.
