Model the Ts & Tc for your operating conditions. Use the Tc to find the de-rated SOAR. That could easily be <<50% of the SOA @ 25°C

 29th August 2012, 02:18 PM #1744 diyAudio Member   Join Date: Jul 2004 Location: Scottish Borders Salas, that "guide" value for 2A to 2.5A for a 40W device is totally misleading. eg. Take 2A and 10Vds resulting in Pq=20W Rth s-a 2C/W. Ta = 40°C Ts ~ 40 + [2 * 20 * 1.2] ~ 88°C Rth c-s ~ 1C/W Tc ~ 88 + 1 * 20 ~ 108°C De-rating factor = [150-108]/[150-25] = 42 / 125 = 0.336 The absolute max Pd for Tj =150°C is 13.44W For a lower continuous Tj I would recommend a continuous Pq << 13.44W, maybe 8W. That leaves you continuous current @ ~800mA for 10Vds. Can you see why your 2A to 2.5A is totally ridiculous? Now increase the mains voltage by 6% and recalculate the worst case Vds voltage. Is it 12V or 13V or 14V? What would be the short term Tj for this continuous situation?

 29th August 2012, 05:26 PM #1746 diyAudio Member   Join Date: Jul 2004 Location: Scottish Borders And that is the statement that is ridiculous. Now model again for 1.5A If that is still too high then try again at 1A. Eventually you will find a more sensible value than 2A to 2.5A.

You model a 2A biased Mosfet on a 2C/W tiny sink assumption and you want to pose the serious one. LOL. Sink it on a teaspoon is next.

 29th August 2012, 09:40 PM #1749 diyAudio Member   Join Date: Jul 2004 Location: Scottish Borders 2C/W is hardly small. I have used 5C/W and 7C/W and 10C/W in high current versions. And I use 20C/W & 30C/W in ordinary DCB1. And that 2C/W is only taking the one mosFET. If all 4 mosFETs were fitted it would need to be bigger than 1C/W Model your suggestion and let the Members see what you are proposing.
