RS launches 1,200 SANYO semiconductor products

Discrete semiconductors, motor driver products, amorphous silicon solar cells and others added into its product lines

Taiwan, 11 March 2010 :

RS Components, the leading distributor of electronic, electro-mechanical and industrial products, today announced the launch of 1,200 types of products manufactured by SANYO Semiconductor Co. Ltd. through its online catalog RS Online (

The products include high-performance discrete Power& RF devices best suited for digital AV equipments and cell phones designing, small-sized highly-effective high-performance motor drivers, and amorphous silicon solar cells. Discrete components include not only the MOSFET series featuring the industry’s highest-level RDS(on) characteristic, small, thin-from and high power package designed for power management and battery management, low-voltage driving flash IGBTs, but also various low saturated voltage and RF bipolar transistors.

Among all, MOSFET- "ATPAK" series achieved the industry’s largest current rating of 100A and very low RDS(on) of 4.3mΩ with very small and thin design. It helps realize large current and low power consumption in various applications such as flat TVs and lighting equipments, as well as PC, power tools & etc.

Go Nakano, RS’s APAC product marketing head said: “We are honored to be able to contribute to the research and development sector across broader technological fields by expanding our product lines of high-performance semiconductors products that is now fortified with the latest technologically-advanced offerings from SANYO semiconductor. In order to aid designers in their product development and design process, all products by SANYO semiconductor will be available for purchase on a same-day delivery basis, regardless of the lot size.”

The Sales & Marketing Division General Manager of SANYO semiconductor, Mr. Yoshiro Ochiai said: “We are delighted to deliver our products which are meant to contribute to environmental conservation in line with our motto, “Power & ECO”, through RS Components, which allows us to serve our global customers in a manner that is more prompt and convenient.”
