Renesas Electronics Delivers New Lineup of Intelligent Power Devices with Low On-Resistance as Replacement for Relays in Automotive Applications to Contribute to Reduced Vehicle Weight

Targeted toward Expanded Adoption in High-Current Load Switch Applications Such as Motor and Heater Control Circuits
As much as I understand this stuff, it sounds like a replacement for contactors and/or IGBTs. But I do understand
Samples of the new IPDs are available now. Pricing varies depending on product version, with the RAJ280002 priced at US$4.00 per unit. Mass production is scheduled to begin in January 2017 and is expected to reach cumulating 850,000 units per month by January 2018. (Pricing and availability are subject to change without notice.)
