TOKYO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Toshiba Corporation (TOKYO:6502) today announced the launch of “TB9005FNG”, a 5-volt constant voltage regulator for application in automotive systems. Sample shipments start today, with mass production scheduled to start in December 2014.
“TB9005FNG” supports 1A or higher output current in combination with external power transistors1, allowing use in automotive applications that require high output current. The IC also incorporates system reset functions for reset of microcontrollers when their voltage is lowered or clock signals are cut off, which contributes to improved safety for automotive systems.
Automotive applications using 5-volt microcontrollers
|Operation Current||90μA (typ) (Vin=12V, Ta=25°C) at 5-volt output|
|System Reset Functions||Low-voltage reset, power-on reset, and watchdog timer|
|Low Voltage Detection||Threshold selectable either 4.2V (typ) or 4.7V (typ)|
|Current Limiter||Adjustable with external resistor|
Operating Power Supply
|6 to 18V|
|-40 to 125°C|
|1.||The product can supply more than 2A output current, when used with Toshiba power transistor “TTB002” or “TTA005”. Survey by Toshiba Corporation.|
