Power Switches

Diodes Incorporated Power Switches are fully integrated monolithic power switches providing reliable Load Management and System Protection in compact form factors.

Power Switches include an array of products which may combine features such as low ON-Resistance, slew rate control to limit in-rush current, Over-Current Protection, Over-Voltage Protection, and reverse current blocking. These features can be used to meet USB power specifications or to manage power to subsystems within a larger application. Shutting down sections of a system to save power is common in cell phones, communications equipment, servers, computers, peripherals, appliances, and automotive with more uses in the expanding IoT and consumer gadget categories. Any application needing power savings or protection will benefit from a power switch.
