|International Rectifier Introduces 100V-Rated Integrated MOSFET
Solution for PoE Applications Slashing Footprint Up To 80%|
EL SEGUNDO, Calif. —
International Rectifier, IR® introduced the IRF4000, a 100V-rated device integrating four HEXFET® MOSFETs into a
single Power MLP package for Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) applications. The new device complies to the IEEE 802.3af
specification for networking and communications infrastructure systems, such as Ethernet switches, routers and hubs,
delivering up to 15W per port, replacing four individual SOT-223-packaged MOSFETs. The reduced footprint equates to
a space savings of up to 80%, or three square inches of circuit board area in a typical 48-port board.
“Considering that each port in a PoE card requires its own MOSFET, the IRF4000 significantly reduces part count
over the alternative of using individual MOSFETs in the same circuit. Manufacturing can also be simplified,
eliminating 36 component insertions in a 48-port system,” said Carl Smith, marketing manager for networking and
telecommunication products at International Rectifier.
The IEEE 802.3af specification outlines
power delivery requirements from the power sourcing equipment (PSE) through the LAN cable to the powered device (PD)
in a networking system. The MOSFET operates like a hot-swap FET, transferring power from the PSE to the PD in a
controlled fashion, and must operate in the linear region through a demanding worst-case operating condition
therefore requiring an extremely robust safe operating area (SOA).
The low transconductance
silicon technology used in the IRF4000 combines with about 1°C/W package thermal resistance to enable efficient
removal of heat while operating in the linear region and has been fully electrically and thermally characterized
under worst case IEEE 802.3af operating conditions. The new device guarantees a 56% higher device safe operating
area compared to individual SOT-223 MOSFETs, improving system reliability and thermal margin.
addition to 48-port systems, the IRF4000 is ideal for 96-port applications or for smaller PoE “jack companion”
modules using 12-ports where, in each case, four ports can be addressed with a single IRF4000 device. The new device
is qualified to industrial moisture sensitivity level (MSL) 3.
In addition to the IEEE 802.3af
specification, the IRF4000 is compliant with the upcoming PoE Plus architecture for high power loads.
