TOKYO - Saturday, July 27th 2013 [ME NewsWire]

(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Toshiba Corporation (TOKYO: 6502) today announced that it has launched photocouplers, "TLP2361” and "TLP2161”, that combine 15Mbps high-speed communication with low power consumption. Mass production is scheduled to start in August, 2013.

The products incorporate Toshiba’s original infrared LED. The LED’s high output and reliability secure low input current operations and reduce threshold input current by approximately 54% compared with equivalent products1. This LED’s stable output under high ambient temperature guarantees operation up to 125 degrees Celsius, the industry’s highest class2 of operation. Fabricated with Bi-CMOS process, supply current per channel is lowered to 1mA (max.), which cuts total supply current by approximately 66% for "TLP2361”, and approximately 60% for "TLP2161”.

"TLP2361”, with a small SO6 package, achieves clearances and creepage distance of 5mm (min.) and complies with t ... Read more »

The pre-specified interim analysis indicated that orteronel plus prednisone would likely not meet the primary endpoint of improved overall survival (OS) when compared to the control arm (HR 0.894, p=0.226). The interim analysis did show an advantage for orteronel plus prednisone for the secondary endpoint, radiographic progression-free survival (rPFS) over the control arm ( ... Read more »
