TOKYO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Mar 31, 2015--Toshiba Corporation 's (TOKYO:6502) Semiconductor & Storage Products Company today announced the launch of a new generation of highly efficient transistor arrays, "TBD62xxxA series", with a DMOS FET type output driver. The new series is the successor to the company's "TD62xxx series" of bipolar transistor arrays, which have found wide use in applications including motors, relays and LED drives. The new generation series consists of 24 products and the start of mass production across the complete line-up is scheduled for June to September 2015.

Toshiba has adopted DMOS FET type output driver for the new products, as a means to secure the high efficiency required to meet customer needs for reduced power loss--DMOS FET do not require a base current, and can accept high current density per device area, keeping on-resistance low.
Toshiba has also applied the latest BiCD  technology. The company has positioned this as the future mainstream for analog ICs fabricated on the company's standard 8-inch manufacturing line, the wafer size widely used in the industry for mass production
Main features of new products
1. High efficiency drive "TBD62003A series" transistor arrays cut power loss by about 40%  compared with the "TD62003A series".
2. High-voltage, large-current drive The absolute maximum rating of the output block is 50V/0.5A.
3. Offers multiple products compliant with VIN(ON) standard according to the appropriate input stage of the circuits.
4. Packages to suit various needs. Available packages are DIP, SOP/SOL for surface mounting, and small SSOP (0.65mm pitch) for space saving.
Applications The products can be applied in amusement equipment (pachinko and slot machines), home appliances (air conditioners and refrigerators), and industrial equipment (vending machines, banking terminals such as ATMs, office automation equipment, and FA equipment)
Product line-up In the first release of the new-generation transistor arrays "TBD62xxxA series", Toshiba will release 24 products: the TBD62003A and TBD62004A series (7ch outputs); the TBD62083A and TBD62084A series (8ch outputs), which are suited to drive inductive load of motors, relays, and so on, by incorporating common diodes; and the TBD62502A and TBD62503A series (7ch outputs), for driving LED and level shift circuits.
*The product name has been changed to "TBD62xxxA", although the new-generation transistor array was announced as "TB62xxxA" series in the previous press release in September 2014.
Notes:  DMOS FET: Double-Diffused MOSFET  BiCD: Process technology that allows integration of Bipolar, CMOS, and DMOS devices.  Power loss is decreased by about 40%: in the condition of Ta=25 o C and IOUT is 200mA.
