Achieves wide bandwidth of 11.5GHz at -3dB

(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Toshiba Corporation (TOKYO: 6502) has launched new single-lane SPDT (Single Pole Double Throw) bus switch ICs that support PCI Express Gen3 (8Gbps) and achieve wide bandwidth characteristics of 11.5GHz at -3dB. The new products, TC7PCI3212MT and TC7PCI3215MT, are suited for applications involving the switching of PCI Express (single lane), USB 3.0 and SATA 3.0 signals. Mass production will start from the end of March.

The new products reduce switch terminal capacitance to achieve wide bandwidth characteristics of 11.5GHz at -3dB, making high-speed transmission with lower signal degradation capable. The new SPDT switches have optimal configurations for all arrangements of PCI Express slots, connectors, and switches on the motherboards of desktop PCs and notebook PCs.

Supports both sink and source logic input to achieve reduction of bridge circuits

TOKYO - Friday, March 29th 2013 [ME NewsWire]

(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Toshiba Corporation (TOKYO:6502) today announced the launch of high-speed photocouplers for programmable logic controllers (PLCs) which work with both plus and minus LED currents.

PLCs accept either sink logic input, used mainly in Japan, or source logic input, used mainly outside Japan. With globalization, bridge circuits are increasingly employed upstream from photocouplers used as PLC input interfaces, in order to provide support for both sink and source logic. The new photocouplers, the buffer logic type "TLP2395" and the inverter logic type "TLP2398", support both sink and source logic by combining two LEDs in inverse parallel, thereby allowing omission of the bridge circuits. Since there are cases where a single board will contain multiple bridge circuits, employing the new photocouplers can support reductions in c ... Read more »
