    Smart MOSFET BTS50055-1TMA will it support 62A


    I have been going through an application which requires 62A high side output with around 80A peak current support for 10s.

    Will this device suit my purpose. There seems two specification IL(ISO)=70A and IL(NOM)=17A. Im not sure which one to follow.

    Thanks for any help

    The ISO rating blindly assumes half a Volt drop over the switch, it gives 35W dissipation which at 33K/W equals 1155 deg. C above ambient.
    It probably is a left-over from the time these smart switches had TO220 tabs, which would give realistic temps with good grease and an infinite heat sink.

    The 17A are OK, 17Ax17Ax7.9mR=2.3W, and 2,3Wx33K/W = 75deg. above 85C ambient = 150C. (7.9mR is the Rds,on at 150C)

    You could get away with a Copper heat slug below the D2PAK and a heat spreader/sink below that, if cool down time after the 10 second pulse is long enough.
    Some board makers incorporate Copper "coins" in boards with holes the size of D2PAK tabs just for this purpose.
