I need a photo darlington single or array with input current of 1 to 60 mA and o/p side current of 500 to 800 mA. Is there any photo-darlington with this specification?

Hello,
Same problem I faced couple of months ago. I solved this by using the following idea.

I know that idea but I need to drive a load which draws 250 mA, so I was thinking it would be better to use photo darlington which can drive 500 mA or 800 mA so that the no. of components can be reduced.
