Hot-swap controllers provide circuit protection by limiting inrush current and fault isolation

04-08-2015 | RS Components | Power

Available now from RS Components, Linear Technology hot-swap controllers
provide circuit protection by limiting inrush current as well as fault
isolation.

The devices allow electronic circuit boards and cards to be inserted into
live system backplanes. They will sense, control and operate continuously
as the boards are hot plugged in or pulled out. They can present board power
monitoring via digital measurements of the current and voltage levels by
integrated ADCs, accessible through I2C/SMBus interfaces. The devices
utilise n-channel MOSFETs to control power flow, which allows a wide range
of load currents and operating voltages.
