|ALD8100/ALD9100 - The ALD8100 and ALD9100 family of Supercapacitor Auto Balancing-MOSFETs, or SAB™ MOSFETs, are EPAD® MOSFETs designed to address leakage balance of supercapacitors connected in series. Supercapacitors, also known as ultracapacitors or supercaps, when connected two in series, can be balanced with an ALD9100 dual package. Supercaps connected two, three, or four in series can be balanced with an ALD8100 quad package.
|Precision N-Channel EPAD® MOSFET Array - Advanced Linear Devices ALD210800A/ALD210800 precision n-channel MOSFET arrays featuring Zero-Threshold™ voltage establish new industry benchmarks for forward transconductance and output conductance.
