We have been advised by our PCB supplier that the ST part STP16NK60Z is now obsolete. ST themselves are advising that the STP13N60M2 device is used as a suitable alternative but we have discovered several differences to the specification that render this alternate part unsuitable for our application (driving a pump motor).
The criteria we are looking for in a replacement are:
- TO-220 package
- At least 14A of avalanche current as per the current spec
- At least 14A of max current
- Similar power dissipation
- Similar/comparable characteristics as the current part.
Having performed parametric searches on ST's website and also the likes of DigiKey/Farnell I am struggling to find anything comparable in performance.
Does anyone have any suggestions for a part that might be a suitable replacement that meets the spec above?
