Manufacturer Introduction

Toshiba (TOSHIBA) is the largest semiconductor manufacturer in Japan and is also the second-largest integrated motor manufacturer under the umbrella of Mitsui Group. 

Toshiba was formerly known as Tokyo Shiba Electric Co., Ltd., which was formed in 1939 by the merger of Shibaura Manufacturing Co., Ltd. and Tokyo Electric Co., Ltd.Since its creation in 1875, it has gone through a long course of 140 years.

In terms of civilian use, Toshiba has changed from a company that focuses on household appliances and heavy-duty motors to a comprehensive electronics and electronics company that includes communications and electronics. Into the 1990s, Toshiba has made rapid development in digital technology, mobile communication technology and network technology. Toshiba has successfully transformed itself from a giant in the home appliance industry to a pioneer in the IT industry.

On the military side: Toshiba is still responsible for producing various kinds of tanks, machine guns, and missile cannons for Japan since World War II.

In 2000, sales of Toshiba Semiconductor ranked second in the world after Intel. The market share of notebook computers is the highest in the world for seven consecutive years. By the end of 2000, the IT output value had reached 74% of Toshiba's total output value.Toshiba was formed by the merger of two Japanese companies in 1939.

The first of the two companies was Tanaka Manufacturing Co., Ltd., which was Japan's first home appliance newspaper manufacturing company. It was founded by Tanaka in 1875. In 1904, the company was renamed Shibaura Manufacturing Co., Ltd. In the early 20th century, the company mainly supplied heavy-duty electromechanical manufacturing in Japan; after the Meiji Restoration, the company became one of the largest industrial companies in the world.

Toshiba’s rapid expansion through the acquisition of other companies led Toshiba to purchase many heavy machinery manufacturers and industry-related companies in the 40s and 50s. However, after the 1970s, Toshiba began to set up subsidiaries to separate the acquired company from the core industry. These subsidiaries include: Toshiba EMI (1960), Toshiba Electronics (1974), Toshiba Chemical (1974), Toshiba Lighting Technology (1989)

In December 2004, Toshiba announced that it would stop producing traditional video tube TVs. In 2006 Toshiba ended the production of plasma TVs. Orion, as Toshiba’s largest foundry, took over the technical specifications of Toshiba’s video-tube TV and plasma TV and sold it to its own brand (Orion). Toshiba has invested considerable funds in SED imaging technology in order to strengthen its competitiveness in digital thin TVs in the future.

Toshiba is an important member of the chip makers in the world. In the 80s Toshiba and NEC were the world's two largest semiconductor manufacturers. Toshiba has been the top 5 chip factory in the world since the 1990s. Toshiba ranked third in 2008, second only to Intel and Samsung, but ranked ahead of Texas Instruments and ST.

    The load-switch circuit normally comprises of discrete MOSFETs, however as the load-switch IC can replace the multiple devices needed in discrete circuits, it saves space, and yet provides additional function to which a discrete MOSFET circuit cannot provide. It is highly suitable as a simple power management solution for complex systems.

    Bipolar Power Traisto for Switching Power Supplies Using a crystal mesh pattern, Toshiba has reduced the storage time (tstg) and fall time (tf) of 400-V and 800-V power traisto for switching power supplies. in addition, we have developed power traisto in a low-profle package. These types of traistor are suitable for low-output AC adapte and ballast lamp applicatio. Bipolar Power Traisto for Audio Power Amplifie Using a minute pattern and a high-deity MET design, Toshiba has achieved high levels of current efficiency. Package type can be selected to yield collector power output ranging from 60 W to 220 W. A wide selection of packages, including the TO-3P(N) and TO-3P(L),is available. Bipolar Power Traisto SMD Series With smaller and thinner electronic devices fuelling demand for SMD-type power traisto, Toshiba provides the following packages to meet manufacture' needs. . PW-Mini ●PW-Mold . TSM +VS-6 . PS-8 . SMV Low-VCE(sa) Bipolar Traistor Series Toshiba power traisto feature a VcEO of 10 V to 100V andan lc of 1A to 7 A, with various surface-mount packages. Ultra-high speed switching traisto and traisto with an SBD or S-MOS are also available.

    Microcontrolle with an ARM core are becoming increasingly popular not only for cell phone applicatio but also for general-purpose applicatio. Toshiba was the fit Japanese vendor to release microcontrolle with an ARM Cortex™-M3 core. Now, Toshiba has become the fit Japanese company to adopt two ARM processo, Cortex™-M0 and Cortex™-M4, in addition to Cortex™-M3 and released the TX00, TX03 and TX04 Series. Our product lineup includes microcontrolle with a broad spectrum of peripherals. Features of the TX04 Series TX04 Series supports the Thumb®-2 and Thumb® itruction sets and provides DSP exteio and a floating-point unit (FPU) in order to deliver high energy efficiency. The TX04 Series also integrates a selection of Toshiba-original high-precision analog circuits on the same chip, making it ideal for mixed-signal applicatio such as digital still cameras, audio equipment, home appliances and seor applicatio. The TX00 Series contai an ARM Cortex™-M0 core on-chip, and like the TX03 Series, offe the Thumb® itruction set. The Thumb®-2 technology extends the limited 16-bit itruction set of Thumb® with additional 32-bit itructio and thus provides excellent code deity. This in turn leads to high energy efficiency. Additionally, the TX00 Series incorporates Toshiba-original high-precision analog functio. It is ideal for healthcare, energy measurement and portable applicatio.

    Recently, many products ranging from compute and home appliances to automobiles and industrial equipment have been driving the need for effective solutio to reduce size and weight. Semiconductor requirements differ from application to application. Take power supplies for example, which are being required to accommodate higher capacity in smaller dimeio. This increases the temperature at which systems are operated.
