The TOSHIBA mini flat coupler TLP181 is a small outline coupler, suitable
for surface mount assembly.
TLP181 consist of a photo transistor optically coupled to a gallium arsenide
infrared emitting diode. Since TLP181 is smaller than DIP package, its
suitable for high-density surface mounting applications such as
programmable controllers

Note: Using continuously under heavy loads (e.g. the application of high temperature/current/voltage and the
significant change in temperature, etc.) may cause this product to decrease in the reliability significantly even
if the operating conditions (i.e. operating temperature/current/voltage, etc.) are within the absolute maximum
ratings.
Please design the appropriate reliability upon reviewing the Toshiba Semiconductor Reliability Handbook
(Handling Precautions/Derating Concept and Methods) and individual reliability data (i.e. reliability test
report and estimated failure rate, etc).
