Toshiba America Electronic Components, Inc. Key Developments
Toshiba America Electronic Components, Inc. Launches New-Generation Transistor Arrays
Apr 16 15
Toshiba America Electronic Components, Inc. launched a new generation of highly power efficient transistor arrays that feature a double-diffused MOSFET (DMOS FET) type output driver. The new TBD62xxxA series succeeds the company's TD62xxxA series of bipolar transistor arrays, which have found wide use in such applications as motors, relays and LED drives. Toshiba has redesigned its complete line of transistor array products, from bipolar transistors to DMOS FET output drivers, in order to achieve the high efficiency needed for general power-intensive industrial applications. Unlike the previous-generation products, these drivers do not require base current biasing, virtually eliminating the input current, and they can handle high current density per device area with relatively low on-resistance. Reducing the on-resistance, in turn, enables output voltage drop for the new products to be lower than for the TD62xxxA series. The new DMOS FET arrays feature high-voltage, high-current drives with a maximum output block rating of 50V/0.5A, and each individual series is compliant with the VIN(ON) standard according to the appropriate input stage of the circuits. The products are available in a range of packages to suit various needs; these include user-friendly dual-inline package (DIP), surface-mounted small outline package (SOP/SOL), and space-saving small SSOP (0.65mm pitch). The first release of the TBD62xxxA arrays will include 24 products differentiated by channel count, sink or source current capability, and power requirements. These include the TBD62003A and TBD62004A series (7-choutputs); the TBD62083A and TBD62084A series (8-ch outputs), which are suited to drive the inductive load of motors and relays by incorporating common diodes; and the TBD62502A and TBD62503A series (7-ch outputs), for driving LED and level shift circuits.
Toshiba America Electronic Components, Inc. Introduces the Latest Additions to its TZ5000 Series of ApP Lite Processors Targeting the Internet of Things
Apr 13 15
Toshiba America Electronic Components, Inc. introduced the latest additions to its TZ5000 series of ApP Lite processors targeting the Internet of Things. Based on the ARM Cortex-A9 dual-core CPU, the TZ5010XBG, TZ5011XBG, TZ5021XBG and TZ5023XBG processors use Toshiba proprietary hardware-based technologies for power management and system integration, delivering the low power consumption necessary for IoT applications. The TZ5010XBG and the TZ5011XBG application processors incorporate a built-in baseband for high-speed Wi-Fi 802.11ac, graphics and video engine. The new processors extend CPU performance, memory performance and temperature range compared to earlier products in the TZ5000 line, making them suitable for IoT products that require greater data capacity, and enabling them to be used in a broader range of applications. The TZ5021XB and TZ5023XBG support LP-DDR2/3 memory, specialized low-power mode for mobile devices, and a small package size for IoT applications. Additionally, the TZ5023XBG has a low-power DSP, the CadenceTensilica HiFi Mini, which executes voice, audio and sensor processing. In addition, Toshiba has released a general-purpose reference board, Android and Yocto Linux Software Development Kits, and design guidelines for easy installation of the development environment. Hardware-based power management technology makes it possible to enter into a low-power mode in microseconds and to transit to low-power mode more easily compared to significantly slower software-based power management technology. It reduces power consumption and contributes to better thermal dissipation for most applications. The TZ5010XBG and TZ5011XBG processors each come in a 12mm x 13mm x 1.2mm ball-grid-array package with 0.5mm pitch and feature HD video at 60 frames per second with decode and a DDR3 x 32-bit DRAM running at 1866Mbps. The TZ5021XBG and TZ5023XBG each come in a 12mm x 12mm x 0.8mm package-on-package with 0.5mm pitch. Video resolution is 1080p at 30fps with decode, and DRAM is LP-DDR2/3 x 32 bit running at 1333Mbps. All devices feature an Imagination PowerVR SGX540 GPU. Samples of the four new ApP Lite processors are now available. Mass production is under way for the TZ5010XBG and TZ5011XBG, and will begin in June 2015 for the TZ5021XBG and TZ5023XBG.
Toshiba America Electronic Components, Inc. Introduces New Power MOSFET Gate Driver for Automotive Applications
Apr 8 15
Toshiba America Electronic Components, Inc. announced the launch of the TPD7104F, a single channel, high-side, N-channel power MOSFET gate driver designed for use in automotive applications. The TPD7104F enables the use of cost-effective N-channel power MOSFETs for high-side switching applications. The new IC features a self-contained charge pump that enhances an N-channel MOSFET switch and eliminates the need for external components. All of this functionality comes in a small PS-8 package (2.8mm x 2.9mm). The TPD7104F is suited for use in automotive applications using 12V batteries to operate high-side N-channel MOSFETs, such as semiconductor relays and load switches. Examples include idle stop and electric power steering systems. Toshiba offers an extensive lineup of power devices for various automotive applications. The combination of low-ON-resistance and fast switching speed makes Toshiba's power MOSFETs an ideal solution for reducing system losses, thereby contributing to energy conservation in automotive applications. The TPD7104F is scheduled to be AECQ-100 qualified by the Automotive Electronics Council in 2015. Key features include: BiCD 0.13 m process; Supply voltage: V(DD(opr))=5 to 18V; Built-in protection and diagnostic functions: Protection functions: overcurrent; Diagnostic functions: over current.
