Toshiba Electronics Europe (TEE) has announced an ultra-compact photocoupler for high-speed communication interfaces.

The TLP118 delivers data transmission at speeds up to 20Mbps, features a minimum isolation voltage of 3750Vrms and offers guaranteed operation from -40C to 125C.

The device integrates a GaAlAs infrared LED, optically coupled to a high-gain, high-speed photodetector, into an SO6 package measuring 4.5mm x 3.7mm x 2.1mm.

Designed to meet the reinforced insulation requirements of global safety standards, the SO6 package has guaranteed minimum creepage and clearance distances of 5mm and a minimum internal insulation thickness of 0.4mm.

The photodetector features an internal Faraday shield to provide for a high common mode transient immunity of +/-15kV/us.

The TLP118 is configured with a general-purpose inverter logic (open collector) output stage and operates from a power supply voltage of 4.5V to 5.5V.

Target applications for the device will include high-speed communication interfaces in factory automation systems, office products, measurement and control equipment and digital appliances such as plasma display panels.
