how many of IRFP240 will match in one batch of 100 units?
I am about to order the IRFP240 and 9240 with 610 and 9610 I just wanted to know that in the reel of 100 how many of them are matching in how many sets? just to order the quantity.

43 ;)

You don't really know that until you get them and start measuring, do you?

How tightly are you matching them, and what is the group size?

For .1v Vgs and pairs, it will be nearly all of them.

I bought 50 to get four groups of 6 for an Aleph 4 build.

rhythmsandy 17th February 2013 05:10 PM

it would be a set of 7 but tolerances... I believe Nelson sir you should tell us how good it has to be how many millivolts

rhythmsandy 17th February 2013 05:11 PM

original IRF and Vishay both are same or different?

KatieandDad 17th February 2013 05:30 PM

Are you after 7 matches ? Seems like an odd number.

In the Pass amps only the MOSFETs in one leg need to be matched, not one leg to another.

Unless you are building an Aleph X which is a different kettle of fish.

I have never found the need to match 240/9240's
The source resistor should help balance things.

It is rare that anyone bothers to try to match P to N's. In an output
stage the big thing is to get DC current sharing so that no one device
hogs the current.

I just went through this exercise with just the 240's for an Aleph X build. I was shooting for quads within 0.010V of each other or better and was able to get matches for about 80% of them. There were a few that were pretty far off for whatever reason (edge of the die?) and a few that were grouped tightly for 3 or a pair, but not four.
