Santa Clara, Calif.Advanced Analogic Technologies Inc. (AnalogicTech) is offering the first in a family of over-voltage protection (OVP) devices for portable applications.
The AAT4684 switch protects low-voltage systems against high-voltage spikes up to 28V from a power line surge or using the wrong charger while offering a low RDS(ON) of 100 milliohms typical at 4.5V.
The OVP protection IC uses a P-channel MOSFET power switch to break the connection between the charger adapter and the battery charger when the input voltage exceeds a preset level. Designers can use the device with either an internally programmed over-voltage trip point or an adjustable protection threshold programmed by two external resistors. OVP response is 1-µs maximum.
Availability: Qualified across the -40°C to +85°C temperature range, the AAT4684 is available in a Pb-free, 12-pin TSOPJW package.
