TOKYO--(Business Wire / Korea Newswire) November 15, 2017 -- Toshiba Electronic Devices & Storage Corporation today announced the launch of “TLP3145,” a new photorelay in a small 2.54SOP4 package with an off-state output terminal voltage of 200V and an on-state current of 0.4A. Volume shipments start today.

Fabricated using the latest U-MOS VIII trench MOSFET process, the new IC combines an off-state output terminal voltage of 200V with a controllable on-state current of up to 0.4A. This makes TLP3145 a suitable replacement for a 1A mechanical relay in control of a 100V AC circuit. Replacing a mechanical relay with a photorelay that is smaller and does not need a relay driver increases system reliability and supports space-saving design. In another plus, the TLP3145 is rated for an operating temperature of 110ºC (max), making it easier to allow for a temperature margin in system-level thermal design.

The latest Gartner market report recognizes Toshiba as the leading manufacturer of optocouplers by sales in 2015 and 2016, with 23% of sale-based market share in CY2016. (Source: Gartner, Inc. “Market Share: Semiconductor Devices and Applications Worldwide 2016” 30 March, 2017)

Toshiba Electronic Devices & Storage Corporation will continue to deliver products that meet the needs of customers by promoting the development of a diverse portfolio of photocouplers and photorelays tailored to market trends.
