|Solderability||Quite easy to hand-solder, although the large tab can make things difficult because of it's heatsinking capabilities.|
TO-252-5-xx (both P1 and P2 suffixes)
Commonly used for power MOSFETs and high power voltage regulators. Features a large tab/pin which can be soldered directly onto the PCB, providing good heatsinking capabilities.
If DPAK is referred to by itself, with no pin number indication (e.g. DPAK3, DPAK5), it is usually referring to the 3-pin version.
