Product Description

The EV5036-J-00A Evaluation Board is designed to demonstrate the capabilities of MPS’ MP5036, a protection device designed to protect circuitry on the output from transients on input. It also protects input from undesired shorts and transients coming from the output. MP5036 is a small RON, low quiescent current, current limited switch.

At startup, the inrush current is limited by limiting the slew rate at the output. The slew rate is controlled by a capacitor at the DV/DT pin.

The maximum load at the output is current limited. The magnitude of the current limit is controlled by an external resistor from ILIMIT to GND. There is a fixed 2.5A current limit when floating ILIMIT pin.

The output voltage is limited by the output over voltage protection (OVP) function.

The MP5036 is available in a space-saving 8 pin-TSOT23-6 package.

12V, 0.4A to 5A, Current Limit Switch with 15V Over-Voltage Clamp in TSOT23 Package

The MP5036 is a protection device designed to protect circuitry on the output from transients on the input. It also protects the input from undesired shorts and transients coming from the output.

During start-up, the inrush current is limited by limiting the slew rate at the output. The slew rate is controlled by the DV/DT pin setting.

The maximum load at the output is current-limited. The magnitude of the current limit is controlled by an external resistor from ILIMIT to GND. There is a fixed 2.5A current limit when floating the ILIMIT pin.

The output voltage is limited by the output over-voltage protection (OVP) function.

The device is available in a TSOT23-6 package.
