The internal lead frame of the PowerDI(TM)323 is 150% larger than the standard SOD-323 and enables increased forward conduction current to pass through the die at a lower power consumption rate.
As illustrated in FIGURE 2, Ohm's Law relates conduction current to voltage drop, and at DC, the relation coefficient is a constant representing the resistance of the conductor.
Resistance is determined by a metal's conductivity and the path geometry of the conduction current.
