Comments

The TO-268 (D3PAK) package is bigger than the TO-263 (D2PAK) package. The D3PAK name stands for “decawatt 3 package”. Unlike the TO-263 package, the TO-268 package only comes in one variant with 3 pins.

It is designed to have a really low thermal resistance so that it can be used in high power applications. The larger die also means that MOSFETs in this package can have lower R_{DS(ON)} values, resulting in less power dissipation for the same current.

I have only ever seen this in the 3-pin variant (called TO-268-3).
