Toshiba Electronics Europe (TEE) is offering two new low-profile IC output photocouplers for directly driving low- to medium-power IGBTs and power MOSFETs. The
TLP5701 and TLP5702 are supplied in ultra-miniature SO6L package with dimensions of just 10mm × 3.8mm × 2.1mm. Despite their small size, the new devices have a minimum isolation voltage rating of 5000Vrms and guaranteed creepage and clearance distances of 8mm. As a result they can be used to save space in designs that require safety standard certification. In addition the couplers offer guaranteed performance and specifications at temperatures ranging from -40°C to 110°C. Potential applications for the new photocouplers will range from home appliances and inverters to factory automation and control equipment.
The TLP5701 has a peak output current of ±0.6A and is optimised for low-power IGBTs and power MOSFETs. A peak output current of ±2.5A makes the TLP5702 ideal for driving medium-power devices.
