Toshiba Ships Samples of Industry's Lowest ON Resistance Load Switch ICs
Featuring Reverse Current Blocking in Ultra-Small Package

IRVINE, Calif., Nov. 12, 2013 Toshiba America Electronic Components, (TAEC)*, a committed leader that collaborates with technology companies to create breakthrough designs, today announced that it began shipping samples of three new ultra low voltage load switch ICs that feature the industry's smallest1 switch ON resistance. The TCK206G, TCK207G and TCK208G join Toshiba's broad lineup of load switch ICs for mobile devices.

With an embedded reverse current block (RCB) circuit and a slew rate control driver, the TCK206G, TCK207G and TCK208G are designed for use as a power management switch IC in smartphones, tablets, ultrabooks, and other mobile equipment. The new products feature very low ON resistance and very low input operating voltage, in an ultra compact package, which was achieved using Toshiba's newly developed CMOS process and unique analog circuit design techniques.

Key Features
  • Low input voltage operation: VIN=0.75 to 3.6V
  • Low ON resistance:
    RON=18.1mΩ(typ.) @VIN=3.3V, IOUT=-1.5A
    RON=18.2mΩ(typ.) @VIN=1.2V, IOUT=-1.5A
    RON=18.4mΩ(typ.) @VIN=0.75V, IOUT=-1.5A
  • Inrush current is limited by the slew rate control driver
  • Reverse current blocking
  • Built in Auto-discharge (TCK207G and TCK208G)
  • Ultra small package: WCSP4C (0.9mm×0.9mm, t: 0.5mm(typ.))
