The MP62061 Power Distribution Switch features internal current limiting to prevent damage to host devices due to faulty load conditions. The MP62061 Analog switch features 80mΩ on-resistance and operates from 2.7V to 5.5V input. It is available with a guaranteed current limit, making it ideal for load switching applications. The MP62061 has built-in protection for both over current and increased thermal stress. For over current, the device will limit the current by changing to a constant current mode.
As the temperature increases as a result of short circuit, the device will shut off. The device will recover once the device temperature reduces to approx 120°C.
