Supports High Output Current in Combination with an External Power Transistor
TOKYO - Tuesday, March 25th 2014 [ME NewsWire]
(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
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)
Adjustable with external resistor
Operating Power Supply Voltage Range
6 to 18V
Operating Temperature Range
-40 to 125°C
The product can supply more than 2A output current, when used with Toshiba power transistor “TTB002” or “TTA005”. Survey by Toshiba Corporation.
