How Protection ICs Maintain System Uptime

Abstract: When a factory goes down, it is a critical event that must be addressed immediately. Protection circuitry that is used to mitigate system faults has traditionally been bulky, expensive, and difficult to implement. However, as this application note discusses, advances in modern protection circuits now provide system engineers with robust, highly integrated, and easy-to-implement solutions that guard against electrical stress-related problems and, as a result, help maintain system uptime.
