Title
(EN) Integrating multi-output power converters having vertically stacked semiconductor chips
Abstract
(EN)

A packaged multi-output converter (200) comprising a leadframe with a chip pad (201) as ground terminal and a plurality of leads (202) including the electrical input terminal (203); a first FET chip (sync chip, 220) with its source terminal affixed to the leadframe and on its opposite surface a first drain terminal (221) positioned adjacent to a second drain terminal (222), the drain terminals connected respectively by a first (241) and a second (242) metal clip to a first (204) and second (205) output lead; a second FET chip (control chip, 211), positioned vertically over the first drain terminal, with its source terminal attached onto the first clip; a third FET chip (control chip, 212), positioned vertically over the second drain terminal, with its source terminal attached onto the second clip; and the drain terminals (213, 214) of the second and third chips attached onto a third metal clip (260) connected to the input lead (203).
