Fuji Electric’s Super Junction MOSFET device called SUPER J-MOS, is now available at 600V, exhibiting 70% reduction in On resistance.

Amidst heightening concerns over the global environment, initiatives to become more environmentally friendly in the fields of IT and new energy, among others, are focusing attention on power semiconductors with efficient power conversion. In this context, demand exists for MOSFETs (metal-oxide-semiconductor field-effect transistor)—the principal devices used for power conversion in semiconductors—that improve energy efficiency to a greater extent than in the past. In response, Fuji Electric is releasing the Super J-MOS series featuring its newly developed superjunction (SJ) structure, which achieves low on-resistance performance and significantly reduces energy loss.
