INTELLIMAX™ FPF219X DEMO BOARD - Full Function Load Switch with Adjustable Current Limit.

Demonstration board for Fairchild semiconductor FPF2193,4,5 full functional current limit load switches.

FPF2193 is mounted on this board as generic part. The operation input voltage range is 1.8V-5.5V and typical adjustable current limit value is 0.151.5A. Board’s dimensions are 1.0 x 1.5 inches.

The FPF2193, FPF2194, and FPF2195 form a series of load switches that provides full protection to systems and loads that may encounter large current conditions. These devices contain a 55mΩ current-limited Pchannel MOSFET that can operate over an input voltage range of 1.8 to 5.5V. Internally, current is prevented from flowing when the MOSFET is off and the output voltage is higher than the input voltage. Switch control is by a logic input (ON) capable of interfacing directly with low-voltage control signals. Each part contains thermal shutdown protection that shuts off the switch to prevent damage to the part when a continuous over-current condition causes excessive heating. When the switch current reaches the current limit, the parts operate in a constant-current mode to prohibit excessive currents from causing damage. For the FPF2193 and FPF2194, if the constant current condition still persists after 30ms, the parts shut off the switch and pull the fault signal pin (FLAGB) LOW. The FPF2193 has an auto-restart feature that turns the switch on again after 450ms if the ON pin is still active. The FPF2194 does not have this auto-restart feature, so the switch remains off until the ON pin is cycled. The FPF2195 does not turn off after a current limit fault, but remains in the constant-current mode indefinitely. The minimum current limit is 100mA. These parts are available in a space-saving six ball advanced 1 x 1.5mm WLCSP package.
