TOKYO — (BUSINESS WIRE) — July 25, 2013 — Toshiba Corporation (TOKYO: 6502) today announced that it has launched photocouplers, TLP2361 and TLP2161, that combine 15Mbps high-speed communication with low power consumption. Mass production is scheduled to start in August, 2013.

The products incorporate Toshibas original infrared LED. The LEDs high output and reliability secure low input current operations and reduce threshold input current by approximately 54% compared with equivalent products1. This LEDs stable output under high ambient temperature guarantees operation up to 125 degrees Celsius, the industrys highest class2 of operation. Fabricated with Bi-CMOS process, supply current per channel is lowered to 1mA (max.), which cuts total supply current by approximately 66% for TLP2361, and approximately 60% for TLP2161.
TLP2361, with a small SO6 package, achieves clearances and creepage distance of 5mm (min.) and complies with the reinforced insulation3 class of overseas safety standard (EN60747-5-5). TLP2161, incorporating two circuits in SO8 package, reduces mounting area by approximately 40%, compared with two units of TLP2361, and contributes to downsizing of applications and reduction of PCB cost.
