Mobile phones, ATMs, traffic signals, the internet – so much of our daily life is dependent on rack-based computers, communications and storage, that need to be maintained with the power on. NextPower Live MOSFETs are designed specifically for such applications:

  • When a replacement board is plugged into a live system, it is important that the in-rush current is carefully controlled, to protect the components on the board and to ensure that other parts of the system do not experience any power disruption. MOSFETs with a strong linear mode performance and wide safe operating area (SOA) are required to manage this current effectively and reliably.
  • Once the replacement board is safely installed, the MOSFET is turned fully ON. In this mode of operation, a low RDS(on) value is of primary importance, helping to keep temperatures down and system efficiency at a maximum.

Only NextPower Live MOSFETs offer reliable linear mode performance AND low RDS(on) efficiency.
