Alpha and Omega Semiconductor Introduces New 40V 0.99mOhm MOSFET in a
DFN5x6 Package
Ultra-low on-resistance and robust switching performance enable more compact power designs
SUNNYVALE, Calif., December 18, 2014 – Alpha and Omega Semiconductor Limited (AOS) (Nasdaq: AOSL), a
designer, developer and global supplier of a broad range of power semiconductors and power ICs, today announced the
release of AON6590, the flagship device in its new 40V medium voltage portfolio. The AON6590 is designed to address a
wide range of applications including primary-side and secondary-side switching in telecom and industrial DC/DC converters,
secondary-side synchronous rectification in DC/DC and AC/DC converters, as well as POL modules for telecom systems.
The AON6590 is the lead product in what will be a new portfolio of 40V products that are optimized for switching power
conversion. Compared to previous generations, this new product improves on-resistance by 30% which reduces conduction
losses and allows lower case temperatures during heavy load operation. AON6590 also offers low output capacitance,
reducing turn-off energy loss, thus enabling higher efficiencies in hard-switched applications. In addition to the performance
benefits, this device has been designed with a robust UIS capability to handle extreme conditions such as output short circuits
or start-up phases. The AON6590 is available in a compact DFN5x6 power package.
"AON6590 marks a new generation of products designed to enable rugged system solutions with higher power density. The
new device allows our customer to design power supplies that run cooler and improve overall system reliability." said
Stephen Chang, Sr. Product Marketing Director at AOS.
