Analog and mixed-signal semiconductor company MagnaChip Semiconductor (Cheongju-si, South Korea) has announced the release of a 100-V mid-voltage MOSFET with a new thermal package designed for the fast-growing electric bike (e-bike) market.
The MOSFET is housed in a M2PAK-7P package suitable to meet the particular requirements of electric bike (e-bike) systems, which are powered by electric motors running on lithium-ion batteries. The 100V MOSFET, says the company, features a best-in-class thermal package and is an essential electronic device that controls the speed of the motor and supplies a stable current of electric power to the lithium-ion Battery Management System (BMS).
“The emergence of e-bike is a highly attractive opportunity for MagnaChip,” says YJ Kim, CEO of MagnaChip. “Our 100V MOSFET product in a specially-designed thermal package is designed for the particular needs of motors and lithium-ion batteries that power e-bikes like electric scooters. MagnaChip plans to launch new Mid-Voltage MOSFET products with M2PAK-7P to meet the evolving needs of this rapidly-growing consumer sector.”
The company’s 100V mid-voltage MOSFET is said to be especially suitable for e-Bikes requiring high power systems. With its M2PAK-7P package, says the company, the new MOSFET achieves a best-in-class thermal performance and a lower Rds(on) compared to other MOSFET products currently on the market.
The device also increases the maximum operating current to 240 A. These features enable a high level of operational efficiency and a secure supply of power, both of which are necessary for high-powered e-bikes.
