Renesas launches new generation of automotive Intelligent Power Devices

Japanese semiconductor manufacturer Renesas Electronics has revealed a new automotive Intelligent Power Device (IPD) that’s designed to safely and flexibly control power distribution within vehicles.

The new RAJ2810024H12HPD is available in a small TO-252-7 package and reduces the mounting area by about 40% compared to the conventional TO-263 package product.

Renesas also says that the advanced current detection function of the new device allows highly accurate detection of abnormal currents such as overcurrent. Since the new IPD detects abnormal currents even at low loads, it allows engineers to design power control systems that can detect even the smallest abnormalities.

Key features of the new RAJ2810024H12HPD IPD

  • Single-channel high-side IPD
  • Small TO-252-7 package (6.10 x 6.50 mm, excluding pins)
  • Low on-resistance (Ron) of 2.3 mΩ at 25° C (typical)
  • Highly accurate current detection at low loads
  • Built-in charge pump
  • Self-diagnostic feedback by load current sense
  • Protection functions such as load short-circuit, overheat detection, sense current output and GND open protection
  • Supports 3.3 V / 5 V logic interface
  • Low standby current
  • Battery reverse connection protection with self-turn-on
  • Compliant with AEC-Q100 and RoHS automotive standards

“We are very pleased to launch a new generation of automotive IPDs featuring our new power MOSFET process,” said Akira Omichi, Vice President of Renesas’s Automotive Analog Application Specific Business Division. “Renesas will continue to develop IPDs that improve the safety and reliability of power supply systems and facilitate system development for our customers by offering system-level solutions with our microcontrollers.”
