Future Electronics Offers Free Fairchild Dual Cool™ MOSFET Samples

Montreal, Canada – December 30, 2015 – Future Electronics, a global leading distributor of electronic components, is pleased to offer free Dual Cool™ MOSFET samples to qualified customers.

Fairchild’s Dual Cool™ MOSFET packaging technology provides both bottom- and top-side cooling in the industry standard PQFN package, giving designers performance flexibility. With enhanced dual-path thermal performance and improved parasitics over wire-bonded predecessors, the use of a heat sink provides even more impressive results. Lab testing proves that when a heat sink is used with Dual Cool package technology, synchronous buck converters deliver higher output current and increased power density.

With Fairchild’s trench silicon technology, Dual Cool packaging is a clear leader in power density and thermal performance. Dual Cool solutions are lead-free, RoHS-compliant, and available in 3.3 x 3.3, 5 x 6, and 8 x 8 PQFN packages.

Typical applications for Fairchild’s Dual Cool MOSFET technology include Point of Load (POL) synchronous-buck conversion, servers, telecommunications, routing, and switching.

Future Electronics Releases ltech Featuring BCR Series Current Regulators from Diodes

Montreal, Canada – December 7, 2015 – Future Electronics, a global leading distributor of electronic components, recently released an ltech featuring the new BCR Series of current regulators from Diodes.

The new BCR420U and BCR421U constant current regulators provide a simple means of driving low-power LED strings. Target applications are those that benefit from the improved efficiency, flexibility and longer life offered by LEDs as an emerging lighting source.

Supporting adjustable currents from 10mA to 350mA allows for platform designs based on a single device to be used across multiple LED strip applications, considerably easing a manufacturer’s overall qualification process. These LED drivers also enhance system reliability as the monolithic integration of a transistor, diodes and resistors both simplify system design and reduce component count.

The 40V maximum input rating ensures sufficient headroom for transient supply voltages and allows for LED short failures on long strings. With its low-side driver configuration, BCR421U has the added feature of an enable function that can adjust the light output level using a PWM input signal.

Typical applications include automotive interior lighting, emergency lighting strips, advertising signage, retail refrigeration, mood lighting, medical lighting, retrofits for general lighting, channel lighting, vending machines, and aircraft, train and ship illumination.
