Fairchild Semiconductor’s IntelliMAX™ Load Switches Offer Industry’s Lowest Quiescent Current (1µA)

From: Fairchild Semiconductors
Published: Wed Jan 07 2009

Fairchild Semiconductor (NYSE: FCS) brings designers of biometric sensor modules advanced load switches with the industry’s lowest quiescent current. The FPF2024, FPF2025, FPF2026 and FPF2027 are IntelliMAX advanced load switches that minimize the quiescent current and prolong battery life. With a quiescent current of only 1µA, these advanced load switches use less than two percent of the current of alternate solutions whose quiescent current ranges from 60 to 80µA. They also provide robust current limiting protection that prevents damage from adverse events associated with unexpected current surges.

The FPF202x series features a wide operating range (1.6V to 5.5V) to address the voltage specifications for biometric sensor modules found in laptops, ultra-mobile portable computers (UMPCs), smart phones and other portables. Packaged in compact 1 x 1.5 WL-CSP packaging and bolstered with robust ESD protection (5.5kV), these advanced load switches address the space and ESD protection concerns facing portable designs.

This FPF202x series is part of Fairchild’s comprehensive portfolio of highly integrated IntelliMAX switches. These advanced load switches combine protection, control and fault monitoring functions in compact packaging to reduce complexity in power management designs and accelerate time-to-market.

The FPF2024, FPF2025, FPF2026 and FPF2027 utilize lead-free (Pb-free) terminals and have been characterized for moisture sensitivity in accordance with the Pb-free reflow requirements of the joint IPC/JEDEC standard J-STD-020.
