Alpha and Omega Semiconductor Limited (AOS) (Nasdaq: AOSL), a designer, developer and global supplier of a broad range of power semiconductors, today announced the addition of the first 8V devices to its Low Voltage Power MOSFET product line. The AON2400 and AON2401 feature ultra-low on-resistance rated at 1.2VGS to extend battery life in low voltage applications. The combined benefits of longer battery life and compact form factor make these new devices ideal for space-constrained portable applications such as smart phones, tablet PCs, UltraBook computers, eReaders, digital cameras and portable music players. The AON2400 and AON2401 are the best-in-class 8V devices available in the market today. They are housed in a thermally enhanced DFN2x2 power package and are available in N-Channel and P-Channel versions, respectively. The ultra-low on-resistance is guaranteed down to very low gate rating of VGS = 1.2V, which helps designers to simplify drive circuitry, lower power consumption and improve battery life. The compact footprint (2mm x 2mm) and ultra-thin (0.6 mm) profile of the thermally enhanced DFN2x2 enables more efficient solutions in space-constrained applications. "These new 1.2VGS rated MOSFETs utilize AOS' proprietary AlphaMOS™ (aMOS™) technology, which adds exceptional performance for load and battery switches in portable applications." said Peter Wilson, Director of Low Voltage MOSFETs at AOS. Both devices are available in the halogen-free DFN2x2 package. Pricing and Availability The AON2400 and AON2401 are immediately available in production quantities with a lead-time of 12 weeks. The unit price for 1,000 pieces is $0.27.
