Announcing development of an ideal diode IC with reverse connection and reverse current protection which reduces conduction dissipation by 55% Built-in control circuit eliminates the need for external circuits
Aug. 26, 2020
Shindengen Electric Manufacturing Co., Ltd. has developed and begun shipping samples of the MF2003SV IC V-DiodeTM ideal diode. By integrating a Pch MOSFET with reverse connection protection and reverse current protection functions, this product greatly reduces power dissipation, eliminates the need for external parts, simplifies design, and contributes to circuit downsizing.
This makes it possible to simplify heat dissipation measures through reduction of power consumption in reverse connection protection and reverse current protection applications for vehicle installed electronic devices, which use batteries and DC/DC converters as input sources, which in turn contributes to downsizing of devices.
MF2003SV samples are currently shipping with sales expected to begin in August 2021.
※ V-DiodeTM stands for Virtual Diode
In recent years, advances in electronic control technologies for vehicle installations have resulted in an increase in the number of vehicle installations of ECU (Electronic Control Unit) which control electronic devices, as well as diversification of the applications for these ECU, including meters, heads-up displays, transmissions, lane keeping assist systems, and more.
These ECU use output from Li-ion and lead batteries as well as DC/DC converters as input sources, and have long used diodes as the reverse connection protection and reverse current protection elements for their inputs. However, consolidation of functions and a shift to multi-functionality in electronic devices has resulted in larger currents, which in turn increases the dissipation and heat generation of diodes, impeding the downsizing of heat dissipation countermeasure devices, so there has been increasing demand for reverse connection protection and reverse current protection elements which can reduce dissipation and heat generation.
In response to these market needs, Shindengen has developed the MF2003SV IC V-DiodeTM ideal diode which integrates a Pch MOSFET with reverse connection protection and reverse current protection functions.
By utilizing a Pch MOSFET instead of the conventional diodes, this product reduces conduction dissipation by 55%*1 and greatly reduces temperature increases by 37%*1, allowing not only for downsizing of heat dissipation measures, but also reducing mounting area by 75%*1, contributing to device downsizing as well.
In addition, this product integrates a Pch MOSFET drive circuit, eliminating the need for external parts and thereby contributing to simplified design.
