|FHR1200 Voltage Regulator - Fairchild's FHR1200 is a high-efficiency regulator that outperforms the typical shunt regulator in applications where low operating power, wide temperature, and wide voltage range is important. The regulator also features better stability and faster response than many existing regulators. Unlike the LM431 type of part, the FHR1200 can directly drive a power supply controller, thus saving parts count and circuit complexity in many applications.
|P-Ch PowerTrench® MOSFETs - Fairchild's latest medium voltage power 100 V, 150 V PowerTrench® MOSFETs are optimized power switches combining small gate charge (QG), small reverse recovery charge (Qrr) and soft reverse recovery body diode, which contributes fast switching for synchronous rectification in AC/DC power supplies. The latest 100 V, 150 V PowerTrench® MOSFETs employ shielded-gate structure that provides charge balance. By utilizing this advanced technology, the FOM of these devices is 66 percent lower than that of previous generations.
|TinyBuck Flyer DC-DC Regulator Family - Fairchild’s next-generation TinyBuck DC-DC regulator family provides higher system efficiency to help system designers meet tough energy standards and improve battery life while reducing total cost of ownership. The TinyBuck regulator family enables end-user applications to achieve greater than ninety-six percent efficiency over a very-wide load range.
|FOD3182S MOSFET Gate Driver Optocoupler - The FOD3182 is a 3 A output current, high-speed MOSFET gate-drive optocoupler. It consists of an aluminum gallium arsenide (AlGaAs) light emitting diode (LED) optically coupled to a CMOS detector with PMOS and NMOS output power transistors integrated circuit power stage. It is ideally suited for high-frequency driving of power MOSFETS used in Plasma Display Panels (PDPs), motor control inverter applications, and high-performance DC-DC converters. The device is packaged in an 8-pin dual in-line housing compatible with 260°C reflow processes for lead-free solder compliance.
