MOSFET SOA

    Have manufacturers eliminated DC SOA? Even from old devices? Can the old
    curves still be trusted, or are all new production actually broken?

    Example: compare IRF830, ST's '99 datasheet versus current Vishay docs.

    What you mean about SOA? Safe Operating Area?
    In pdf it's same.
    http://www.vishay.com/docs/91063/91063.pdf
    http://www.irf.com/product-info/datasheets/data/irf830.pdf

    I'm expect that any IRF830 can be replaced to any IRF830.

    Those are essentially the same datasheet (Vishay bought IR), and don't
    include DC SOA. I suggested ST, give this a try:

    The datasheets wouldn't seem to agree, which is disturbing.

    Say hello to Miller effect.
