SEMTECH HotSwitch platform includes integrated load switches and eFuses with first-of-their-kind elevated protection feature sets optimized for protecting electronics systems against typical electrical transients and steady-state fault conditions. Platform aids in safeguarding electric systems, provides elevated protection features that prolong the life span of electronic devices and potentially reduce e-waste. HotSwitch devices are specifically designed to detect electrical surges and provide robust security to the downstream subsystem by gracefully disconnecting the load from the power source. Devices provide an enhanced shield against inrush current, overvoltage, under voltage, reverse current, short circuit, and over-temperature faults.
