Toshiba Electronics Europe (TEE) has launched two new ultra-miniature IGBT/MOSFET Gate drive photocouplers that offer guaranteed performance at temperatures ranging from -40°C to 125°C.
The TLP700H and TLP701H are supplied in SDIP6 packaging and are designed to directly drive IGBTs and power MOSFETs without the need for additional components. Maximum peak output current ratings are ±2.0A for the TLP700H and ±0.6A for the TLP701H. Despite their size (mounting area is just half that of a DIP8 package) each device offers a minimum withstand voltage of 5000Vrms. This allows designers to address the re-inforced isolation requirements demanded for international safety certification.
The new TLP700H and TLP701H couplers feature buffer logic type totem pole outputs and incorporate internal noise shields to provide minimum guaranteed common mode transient immunities of ±20kV/µs and ±15kV/µs respectively. Low maximum supply currents – 3mA for the TLP700H and 2mA in the case of the TLP701H – help to keep power consumption to a minimum.
