Toshiba Corporation has included 19 products to its line-up of new-generation transistor arrays equipped with DMOS FET outputs. Joining the 37 products in the TBD62xxxA series, the new devices have found application in areas including motors, relays, LEDs, and level shifters for control communication lines.
Products currently in mass production are mainly High-active (H-active) type products in which output is turned on if H level is input. Toshiba is now adding Low-active (L-active) products in which output is turned on if L level is input.
Toshiba is also adding the TBD62381A series, which realizes low power consumption by modifying characteristics of in-line products TBD62083A series.
Toshiba has added a source-output type transistor array TBD62789APG to it’s existing TBD62089APG sink-output type transistor array.
Combining sink-output type and source-output type transistor arrays is suitable for supplying power source and constructing ON and OFF control systems in electric lighting applications.
Features of the new products:
1. Offers products with two input types according to the needs
H-active products input control signals directly from the CPU (for the motor drive, the relay drive, the LED drive, etc.), while L-active products input control signals via an open drain configuration circuit (for level shift in the control communication line, etc.).
2. Offers two output type products
The source output type used for switching power supply and the sink output type used for ON / OFF control. Dynamic control of the LED matrix is possible by combination of source output and sink output.
3. High efficiency drive
New-generation transistor arrays, “TBD62XXX” series cut power loss by about 40% compared to preceding TD62XXX series.
4. High-voltage, large-current drive
Absolute maximum output rating is 50V/0.5A
5. Packages for various applications
The line-up includes DIP packages, where there is strong demand for the hobby goods, amusement and industrial equipment fields; SOL packages that support surface mounting; and small SSOP packages (0.65 mm pin pitch) suitable for saving space in set products.
Level shifters for control communication lines in industrial equipment (vending machines, banking terminals such as ATMs, office automation equipment, and factory automation equipment), amusement equipment (pachinko and slot machines), home appliances (air-conditioners and refrigerators), etc.,
Sample shipments start today, and the new products will be introduced sequentially.
