LINEAR INTEGRATED CIRCUITS
HIGH-VOLTAGE, HIGH-CURRENT 8 DARLINGTON ARRAYS
These high-voltage, high-current Darlington transistor arrays comprise eight NPN Darlington on a
common monolithic substrate. All units feature open collector outputs and integral suppression diodes
for inductive loads. Peak currents of 500 mA can be withstood. They are pinned with inputs opposite
outputs to facilitate circuit board layout.
The L601 is a general-purpose array wich may be used with DTL, TTL, PMOS, CMOS, etc.
The L602 is specifically designed for use with 14 to 25V PMOS devices. Each input has a Zener
diode and resistor in series in order to limit the input current to a safe value.
The L603 has a series base resistor to each Darlington pair, and thus allows operation directly with
TTL or CMOS operating at a supply voltage of 5V.
The L604 has a series base resistor to each Darlington pair, and thus allows operation directly with
PMOS or CMOS utilizing supply voltage of 6 to 15V.
In all cases, the individual Darlington collector current rating is 400 mAo However, outputs may be paral-
leled for higher load current capability. The devices are supplied in a 18-lead dual in-line plastic package
with copper frame.
