2. TO-247AC (TO-247-3)

The TO-247AC (a.k.a. TO-247-3) is the 3-pin variant of the TO-247 package. It is considered the "upgrade" of the TO-218 (SOT-93), with the main difference being the insulated mounting hole, making it easier to mount to a heatsink without shorting things out (it is "mechanically compatible" with the TO-218, however not identical![1]).

When containing a MOSFET, the pin wiring is usually:

  1. Gate

  2. Drain

3. TO-247PLUS

The TO-247PLUS packages (TO-247PLUS-3 and TO-247PLUS-4) are variants of the TO-247 package by Infineon. The main difference is the removal of the mounting holes in the TO-247PLUS variants, plus some extended creepage distances for the TO-247PLUS[2].
