Toshiba expands transistor array offering

Toshiba has added 19 products to its line-up of new-generation transistor arrays equipped with DMOS FET outputs.

The new devices have 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. L-active products are designed to level shifters for control communication lines in industrial equipment, amusement equipment and home appliances.

In addition, Toshiba is also adding to the line-up the TBD62381A series, which realizes low power consumption by modifying characteristics of in-line products TBD62083A series.

Alongside TBD62089APG, a sink-output type transistor array equipped with D-type Flip Flop circuits (8-bit type) in the input, which has been in mass production since January, Toshiba has also added a source-output type transistor array, TBD62789APG, in response to demand from the amusement and industrial equipment field.

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.

Applications include industrial equipment (vending machines, banking terminals such as ATMs, office automation equipment, and factory automation equipment), amusement equipment (pachinko and slot machines) and home appliances (air-conditioners and refrigerators..
