Nexperia's Low Profile DHXQFN Packages

Nexperia has announced the smallest and lowest profile 14,16, 20, and 24 pin packages for standard logic devices. DHXQFN packages not only have a smaller footprint but the package also offers a 25% saving in the PCB area. This Package enables devices to be placed closer to the bypass capacitor that can be a significant advantage in designs with limited board space for glue logic parts, and also results in increased performance in high-frequency applications since the traces between logic device and capacitor are shorter.


The DHXQFN packages measuring 2mm x 2mm (14 pin), 2mm x 2.4mm (16 pin), 2mm x 3.2mm (20 pin) and 2mm x 4mm (24 pin) and are 0.45mm high. The parts include hex inverting Schmitt-triggers; 8-bit SIPO shift registers with output latches; 4-bit dual supply translating transceivers; octal buffer/line drivers; octal bus transceivers; and 8-bit dual supply translating transceivers.


Ashish Jha, Nexperia’s product manager said that “These new packages are an example of the innovation we are bringing. Previously, incorporating large logic functions into a system with a small form factor was unthinkable. However, our new DHXQFN package enables complex functions such as 74HC595 shift registers to fit into space-sensitive applications like smartwatches, mobile devices and internet connected industrial devices.”


Features and Benefits of DHXQFN Packages

  • Smallest and thinnest package in 14, 16, 20 and 24.

  • Significant space savings up to 25% on a PCB area.

  • 45% of space saving compared to industry standard DQFN package.

  • Small footprint and thinness of the package make it conducive for space constrained applications.

  • Delivers better performance due to closer placement of supply bypass capacitor C.

  • Control plan in place for process, product & package

  • RoHS and dark-green compliant
