Renesas Electronics delivers new lineup of IPDs

Supplier of advanced semiconductor solutions Renesas Electronics Corporation has announced the availability of six new intelligent power devices (IPDs) for automotive motor and heater control applications. These devices provide reliable, high-performance solutions compared with mechanical relays that switch the current flow on and off in electronic control units (ECUs). An IPD integrates control circuits that implement protection functions and self-diagnostic functions in a single package, in addition to power MOSFET (metal-oxide-semiconductor field-effect transistor) switching elements. The key features of the new IPDs include low on-resistance for reduced loss and high reliability for an expanded range of large-current applications, guaranteed on-resistance characteristics at low voltages and built-in diagnostic functions, and excellent breakdown tolerance, contributing to smaller and less costly ECUs.
