August 18, 2023 /SemiMedia/ — Nexperia just lately introduced the growth of its analog and logic product portfolio with the introduction of the load swap product household. Headlining the discharge is the NPS4053, a excessive density Built-in Circuit (IC) designed to offer a smaller footprint and superior system safety to assist improve system reliability and guarantee security. The gadget is optimized for utility in transportable units resembling pocket book computer systems, desktops, docking stations, and automotive infotainment techniques.

Load switches are important parts within the operation of a big selection of contemporary digital techniques. They play an important position in managing present/voltage in a managed method from supply to the load. In a typical energy chain, the NPS4053 is usually positioned closest to the load for energy sequencing and inrush-current management, and shutting off energy islands to preserve energy, making it particularly priceless in battery-operated tools. This monolithic answer simplifies circuit design and has an 85% smaller PCB footprint than a comparable community of discrete parts.

The NPS4053 operates with an enter voltage of two.5 V-5.5 V and comprises a 55 mΩ self-protected MOSFET, which effectively manages the move of energy to the load. This gadget contains programmable current-limiting circuitry permitting exact management of the load present over a variety of 110 mA to 2.5 A with an accuracy of +6%. The gadget additionally helps “true” reverse present blocking, offering sturdy end-to-end system safety. To additional improve system monitoring, the NPS4053 integrates a fault indicator pin that alerts the host controller of a fault occasion.

Amongst different certifications, the NPS4053 is UL 62368 acknowledged and an automotive AEC-Q100 certified model can be accessible. For flexibility, the gadget is obtainable in each leaded and leadless (HWSON 6) packages. For extra particulars, please go to
