USB Fuse


USB Fuse
The MAX1562 is a purpose-built USB current limiter from the chip manufacturers Maxim. The device operates with a supply voltage from 4.0 to 5.5 V with an operating current of typically 40 µA or 3 µA in standby mode. The circuit introduces a very low resistance in the power line (typically 26 mOhm but guaranteed less than 50 mOhm) from an internal MOSFET. The FET gate bias voltage is generated on-chip from a charge pump circuit.
