Nexperia – How to use a board-mounted MOSFET to switch a current as high as 200A

Pg11_Nexperia_thumb

Today’s MOSFETs have such low on-resistance that they stay cool even when handling very high currents. In many cases a heat sink is not required, since the copper of the PCB will dissipate the relatively small amount of heat generated by the MOSFET. This ability to surface-mount power devices has made new packages such as […]
