Implementing an Overcurrent Protection Device

Overcurrent protection is protection against excessive currents or current beyond the acceptable current rating of the device. To protect downstream loads, the point of overcurrent protection should occur at the FET switch. An overcurrent protection device can be easily implemented using a GreenPAK 3 SLG46116V chip. The SLG46116 includes a P-FET Power Switch designed for load switching applications. The P-FET Power Switch can be controlled internally via the ON digital input of the P-FET Power Switch component in GreenPAK Designer, allowing the user to generate integrated mixed-signal control circuits.
