IRVINE, Calif., April 24, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --Toshiba America Electronic
Components, Inc., (TAEC)*, a committed leader that collaborates with
technology companies to create breakthrough designs, today announced the
availability of a new lineup of load switch ICs for mobile devices. Featuring
Toshiba's newly developed micro CMOS process, the new lineup features low
voltage operation and low ON-resistance characteristics – in ultra-small

The TCK101G and TCK102G are low consumption current load switch ICs with slew
rate control driver for power management.Featuring low voltage operation at
1.1V and a low ON-resistance characteristics of 55mohms (typ.) (VIN = 3.3V,
IOUT = 500mA) in a 0.4mm pitch ultrasmall WCSP6 (0.8mm x 1.2mm, t: 0.64mm
(max.)) package, these ICs come standard with an inrush current limiter and
overtemperature protection circuit. An output auto-discharge function is also
available. Toshiba's new lineup of 200mA output LDO regulators control inrush
current, making them suitable for a wide range of applications including
mobile phones, portable audio players, notebook PCs, DSC/DVC, and other small
mobile devices.

Toshiba's TCK104G and TCK105G are load switch ICs for power management and
current limit function featuring wide input voltage operation from 1.1 to
5.5V. They feature low switch ON- resistance at 65mohms typical at 3.3V,
700mA load condition and a slew rate control driver, with thermal shutdown and
an output auto-discharge function. Output current type is available,
simplifying device selection and design. Available in a 0.4mm pitch ultra
small package WCSP6 (0.8mm x 1.2mm x 0.64mm (max)), these devices are ideal
for portable applications that require high-density board assembly – including
mobile phones.

Toshiba is also offering the TCK106G, TCK107G and TCK108G which are available
in the ultra-small WCSP4 package with a 0.64mm 2 footprint. 

According to Talayeh Saderi, senior business development engineer for TAEC,
"Mobile devices continue to get lighter and thinner, with designers adding
more and more powerful functionalities. System designers looking to accomplish
all of this - while at the same time extending battery life and meeting
high-density board requirements – will find Toshiba's new load switch power
management ICs fit the bill perfectly."

  oWide input voltage operation: VIN = 1.1 to 5.5V
  oLow ON-resistance
  oLow quiescent current:
  oLow standby current: I[^Q(OFF)] = 0.1 microamperes (typ) in stand-by mode
  oInrush current reducing circuit
  oThermal shutdown function
  oAuto-discharge available 
  oPull down connection between CONTROL and GND
  oUltra small package: WCSP6B (0.8mm x 1.2mm x 0.64mm(max))
      WCSP4 (0.79mm x .79mm x 0.5mm(typ))
