20V MOSFET saves space & power in mobile applications

20V MOSFET saves space & power in mobile applications
Designed to save space, decrease power consumption and extend battery life, a TrenchFET 20V n-channel MOSFET unveiled by Vishay is available in the chipscale MICRO FOOT 0.8x0.8x0.357mm package. The Si8824EDB is claimed to provide the industry's lowest on-resistance for any 20V device with a 1mm2 or less than 0.7mm2 outline. It targets smartphones, tablets, wearable devices, solid-state drives and portable medical devices such as hearing aids.
