Part Number: PAL16R4AM

PAL16R4A vs PAL16R4A-2 

We were using the PAL16R4A-2 (half power part) in our design.  We can no longer get it so we are switching to the 16R4A (full power).   We are concerned that the Full Power device uses more power, but at the frequency and the burn file we are using we are measuring about the same current for both parts (half and full power).     Can we assume that future Full Power parts will use the same amount of power that we are measuring now?

Thanks

Mike

  • Mike,

    I am not certain on this, and will need to do a little research to see if I can find some details to help answer.

    I will reply back with what I find.

    Mike,

    Can you provide me with the orderable device number for the a-2 half power device?

    The original PAL we presently list on the BOM is pn: JM38510/50410BRX. for the Half Power device

     

    The new PAL we are testing for addition to the BOM is pn: M38510/50404BRX for the Full Power Device
