Toshiba Introduces Compact Photorelays with Improved Isolation Voltage of 3.75kV

4-pin SO6 Packages Capable of Withstanding Operating Temperatures of up to 110°C

IRVINE, Calif., May 2, 2017 -- Toshiba America Electronic Components, Inc. (TAEC)* today announced that it has expanded its extensive portfolio of photorelays with the addition of two 4-pin SO6 package products. The new TLP172AM and TLP172GM operate at temperatures up to 110°C, feature an isolation voltage of up to 3750Vrms and have a 3mA (max) trigger current. This makes them suitable for use as function switches in measuring equipment, sensor switches in security systems, power monitoring function in battery management systems, IoT equipment and more.


The new photorelays are halogen-free1 and are made with a double mold structure. The TLP172AM and TLP172GM utilize multi-chip technology and were developed as high spec, pin-compatible versions of Toshiba’s existing 2.54SOP package products (TLP172A, TLP172G). The new devices satisfy designers’ requirements for thin packages that comply with high levels of safety standards.


Offering on/off control for high-current applications, the TLP172AM features a higher current output rating than phototransistor photocouplers. The TLP172GM can be used in space-constrained battery management systems.

1Toshiba defines halogen-free and antimony-free products as those meeting all of the following requirements: (a) containing bromine (Br) and chlorine (Cl) at no more than 900 parts per million (ppm) by weight for each element, and containing bromine and chlorine in an aggregate amount not exceeding 1500 ppm by weight; and (b) containing no more than 1000 ppm antimony (Sb) by weight. For the avoidance of doubt, halogen-free/antimony-free products may not be entirely free of bromine, chlorine, or antimony, and may contain other elements of the halogen family.
