International Rectifier (El Segundo, CA) has introduced a family of DirectFET®plus power MOSFETs featuring IR’s new generation of silicon that sets a standard in efficiency for 12V input synchronous buck applications including next-generation servers, desktops, and notebooks.

The first two DirectFET®plus devices in the new family, the IRF6811 and IRF6894, reduce on-state resistance (Rds(on)) and gate charge (Qg) compared to previous generation devices to significantly improve efficiency up to 2 percent. The devices offer ultra low gate resistance (Rg) enabling further efficiency improvement by minimizing switching losses in DC-DC converters.
