PLANO, Texas--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--Diodes Incorporated (Nasdaq: DIOD), a leading global manufacturer and supplier of high-quality application specific standard products within the broad discrete, logic, analog and mixed-signal semiconductor markets, today introduced the AP22811 and AP22804/AP22814. Featuring an ultra-low on resistance to reduce power losses, these power switches are optimized for universal serial bus (USB) and other hot-swap applications. Supporting load currents of 2.0A, 2.5A and 3.0A, respectively, this family of devices protects USB ports against over-current, short-circuit and over-temperature conditions and prevents system damage due to reversed currents or voltages. Typical applications include laptop, notebook and tablet PCs, solid-state drives, set-top boxes and similar media devices, as well as various other items of consumer electronic equipment.
A typical RDS(ON) of 50mΩ ensures the AP22811/22804/22814 load switches incur minimal voltage drop and power loss while also providing a fast response to fault conditions. The devices provide a built-in soft start with a 0.6s rise time and an integrated output discharge function controls the complete discharge of the output voltage capacitor. Fault protection is implemented with full auto-recovery and the open-drain fault report flag output (FLG), which requires no external components, and features a 6ms blanking time to prevent false over-current reporting.
AP228xx device options allow for active-high or active-low enable inputs and all are offered in SOT-25 and MSOP-8 packages for ease of use. The AP22804 and AP22814 parts are additionally available in the DFN2020-6 package, which can help reduce board area. Further information is also be available at www.diodes.com.
