Circle the Wagons: Choose the Right Protection for Your Smart Load


要約: Electronic loads require protection from the effects of power outages and fluctuations, inductive load switching, and lightning. In this design solution, we review a typical protection solution with a low level of integration that creates inefficiencies in PC board space and a higher bill of materials. We will examine how a new family of integrated, highly flexible protection ICs with low RDS(ON) provides direct, reverse-voltage and current protection. With a smaller bill of materials and better utilization of PC board space, these new ICs build a perimeter of protection around the load for enhanced safety and reliability.
