Default Exicon 10n16 / 10p16 vs Magnatec BUZ900/905

Anyone done a comparison of these devices? I can get either here. The N channels are about the same price, but the Magnatec 905 is quite a bit more. Is it worth splashing out the extra for the BUZ pairs?

I was asking myself the same thing this week. I also want to buy me a buch of lateral mosfet's, specialy no the dollar is that low compared to the Euro.

When I look at the datasheet's I don't see a difference. My preference are the BUZ devices while they are used by many DIY'ers on the forum and many pro's.

Hi hihopes, Bensen

Both of the Exicon and Magnatec devices use exactly the same silicon die and they are both made in the Semefab factory in Scotland.

It is not well known but Profusion and Magnatec have very close ties to each other.

If you want lateral mosfets at much cheaper prices and actually get a better device then you might want to look at www.class-d.com devices. They are made in the same factory (Semefab)
But have been modified for higher stablity and better power handling capablity.

These devices have just been released and are available from
www.class-d.com by contacting Mike Soppelsa
mike@class-d.com
They will also be available later this year from aussie amplifiers.

They are available currently in single die N and P devices as well as the dual die N and P.

The photo below shows the dual die N and P devices

I hope this helps.

Thanks Anthony, it does help. I did come across the class-d.com devices this morning, but I don't see a TO-3 package offered, so it looks to be pretty difficult to replace the originals with these, though it would be nice if I could.
