NXP Semiconductors N.V. launches BC69PA transistor claimed as the industry's first medium power transistor in a 2x2mm 3-pin leadless DFN SMD package that features VCEO from 20-80V and collector current capability IC up to 2A and ICM up to 3A.

According to the company that claims to be driven by miniaturisation in chip design, the devices offer a flexible solution for designs focusing on space saving, energy efficiency and low heat dissipation.

The BC69PA transistor is designed for general-purpose power-sensitive applications in mobile, automotive, industrial and household appliances. The company added that the DFN2020-3 (SOT1061) packaging can save up to 80 per cent more space on the PCB compared to conventional SOT89 packages while maintaining electrical performance of up to 2A. When mounted on modern 4-layer PCBs, its thermal performance matches much bigger standard SMD packages and allows Ptot levels of up to 1.1W in a tiny footprint, added NXP.

The power transistors feature VCEO from 20-80V and collector current capability IC up to 2A and ICM up to 3A. The devices are also automotive AEC Q101 qualified.

The medium power transistors are available for Rs.4.48 ($0.10) in high volume orders.
