Protected Switches

Protected Switches

Diodes Incorporated protected switches are integrated high-side power switches providing both over-current and over-temperature protection.

Diodes has three families of protected switches:

  • USB Switches Optimized for Universal Serial Bus (USB) and other 3V-5V hot-swap applications. They provide fault protection, power sequencing, and segmentation for different modules. The family of devices complies with USB 2.0 or 3.0 standards, and is available with both polarities of enable input.
  • Load Switches With their lower RDS(ON) they offer the ability to switch higher load currents while still providing high level built-in protection levels.
  • E-fuses Are resettable electronic fuses with programmable rise times.
