Switch ICs with Adjustable Current Limiting

Transistors are often used for switching power supply voltages. MOSFETs are most often used, since they have low β€˜on’ resistances, and they are also available for large currents. What a discrete transistor or MOSFET lacks are protective functions, such as current limiting and overtemperature protection. The MIC2545A from Micrel can provide a solution to this problem. This MOSFET switch has programmable current limiting, as well as undervoltage and overtemperature cutouts.
