The MP5016 is 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.
At startup, inrush current is limited by limiting the slew rate at the output. The slew rate is controlled by DV/DT pin setting and MODE 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 ILIMIT pin.
The output voltage is limited by output OVP function, the clamp voltage can be set by MODE pin connection. Offers a GATE drive signal to block current flows from output to input with an external Nchannel MOSFETs.
The device is available in a QFN10 (1.5mm x 2mm) package.
