Maxim : Overvoltage protectors feature USB charger detection

Maxim Integrated Products introduces the MAX14529E/MAX14530E overvoltage protectors (OVPs) with USB charger detection. These devices employ an integrated MOSFET to protect low-voltage systems against voltage faults up to 28V, thus eliminating the need for an external nFET. Additionally, the MAX14529E/MAX14530E provide high-current USB charger detection and robust, ±15kV ESD protection (Human Body Model)–all in a 3mm2 package. Offering the industry’s smallest solution footprint, these OVPs are ideal for cell phones, media players, PDAs, and other space-constrained applications.

The MAX14529E/MAX14530E are available in a tiny, 1.5mm x 2mm, 12-bump wafer-level package (WLP), and are fully specified over the -40 degrees Celsius to +85 degrees Celsius extended temperature range. Prices start at $1.40 (1000-up, FOB USA).

Maxim Integrated Products is a publicly traded company that designs, manufactures, and sells high-performance semiconductor products. The Company reported revenue in excess of $2 billion for fiscal 2008. Maxim was founded over 25 years ago with the mission to deliver innovative analog and mixed-signal engineering solutions that add value to its customers’ products.
