The eFuse Protection ICs utilize an innovative design that provides a wide range of power inputs (3.3V to 28V) and integrated protection. In addition to overvoltage protection, these electronic fuses protect against overcurrent, short circuit, inrush current, reverse current, and overtemperature events with real-time diagnostics—all in one chip.
The eFuse Protection ICs are ideal for use in a wide range of consumer electronics and data communications interfaces, including Bluetooth headsets; Wearable devices; Tablet PCs; Charging cables; Battery devices; Adapter-powered devices; Networking; PCs/notebooks; Datacom power systems; Fan power controls; HDD and SSD storage drives; Industry 12V/24 power input/output;
The eFuse Protection ICs offer these key benefits: Provides a highly accurate current limiter, with faster response time, and more integrated protection features than traditional fuses and PTCs; Incorporates more flexibility such as adjustable overvoltage threshold, current limiting, and inrush current, along with true reverse current blocking compared to conventional power switches; Reduces the design-in phase, PC board space requirements, BOM cost, and time-to-market when versus typical discrete solutions (e.g., hot-swap controller + MOSFET); Improved product reliability, increased battery life, lower repair costs, and lengthened overall product lifetime;
