Offers Wider Creepage Distance; Suited to Applications with Strict Height Requirements
IRVINE, Calif., — Toshiba America Electronic Components, Inc. (TAEC)*, a committed leader that collaborates with technology companies to create breakthrough designs, today announced the launch of a new transistor output photocoupler in a low-height SO6L 4 pin package - the TLP385. With its low-height of 2.3mm (max), 45 percent lower than DIP4 packages, the TLP385 can be used in situations with strict height requirements. Applications including motherboards, programmable logic controllers, AC adapters, I/O interface boards, inverter interfaces and general purpose power supplies are suited to the new photocouplers.
Toshiba's new photocoupler has an isolation specification equivalent to DIP4 F (wide lead) type package products, and provides a creepage and clearance distance of 8mm (min) and isolation voltage of 5kVrms (min).
According to Joseph Tso , business development manager for TAEC's optoelectronics group, "Our TLP385 is a great choice for high density surface mounting applications, and as a replacement for conventional DIP4 pin package products."
