Dual/Quad Camera Power Protectors

Industry's Only ASIL-Grade Camera Protector with Integrated I2C-Based Diagnostics

Product Details

The MAX20086–MAX20089 dual/quad camera power protector ICs deliver up to 600mA load current to each of their four output channels. Each output is individually protected from short-to-battery, short-to-ground, and overcurrent conditions. The ICs operate from a 3V to 5.5V supply and with a 3V to 15V camera supply. The input-to-output voltage drop is only 110mV (typ) at 300mA.

The ICs provide an enable input and I2C interface to read the diagnostic status of the device. An on-board ADC enables reading of the current through each switch. The ASIL B- and ASIL D-compliant versions include support for reading an additional seven diagnostic measurements through the ADC, ensuring high-fault coverage.

The MAX20086–MAX20089 include overtemperature shutdown and overcurrent limiting on each output channel separately. All devices are designed to operate from -40°C to +125°C ambient temperature.

Description

The MAX20087 evaluation kit (EV kit) demonstrates the full capabilities of the series of power-protector ICs. The EV kit can operate as a stand-alone protector, or can be connected to a controller through an I2C interface for advanced control and diagnostics. The IC populated by default on the EV kit is the MAX20087, which has four output channels and a full suite of diagnostics active for compatibility with ASIL-grade applications. The EV kit is compatible with all other variants in the series, which can be evaluated by replacing the existing IC (U1) with the desired one.

The EV kit allows for simultaneous and independent operation and evaluation of the four protected output power channels. The EV kit has built-in interfaces to operate the part without needing an external I2C controller, although one can be connected to evaluate digital control and expanded diagnostics.
