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 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.
The TPD7104F is now shipping. For more details, samples and pricing information, please contact your local Toshiba Sales Office.
