Fairchild Semiconductor has long been the market leader for 300V N-Channel MOSFET products, but they are being challenged by new devices from IR (International Rectifier).

These chips are typically used for high efficiency industrial applications such 110-120 VAC line conditioners, 110-120 VAC power supplies, mid-range wattage power supplies, DC to AC inverters, solar panel inverters and Uninterruptible Power Supplies (UPS).

Fairchild uses an advanced “Planar” technology for their transistor geometry, called “UniFET”. They promote this as having  lower input and output capacitance and best-in-class reverse recovery for a better Figure of Merit (FOM) (where FOM =  Rds(on) * Qg). This similar to their “QFET” process technology.

International Rectifier’s “Hexfet” family of MOSFETs derives it’s name from the hexagonal shape of the transistors used on the silicon die. This geometry allows IR to increase their channel density which provides a lower silicon area for the same power. This translates into a lower cost device as well as improving the Rds(on) characteristics.

The tables below show the RDS(on) (Max) and Qg (Typical) at 10Vgs for comparison.

Fairchild has the following devices in their 300V portfolio:
