Nexperia announces the introduction of the NPS4053, a new 5V load switch with a smaller footprint and superior system protection. The NPS4053 is an integrated circuit (IC) that provides precise power control and enhanced safety features for a wide range of applications, including portable devices, desktops, docking stations, and automotive infotainment systems.
The NPS4053 features a 55 mΩ self-protected MOSFET that efficiently manages the flow of power to the load. The device also includes programmable current-limiting circuitry, allowing precise control of the load current over a range of 110 mA to 2.5 A with an accuracy of +6%. Additionally, the NPS4053 supports “true” reverse current blocking, providing robust end-to-end system protection.
The NPS4053 is UL 62368 recognised and is available in both leaded and leadless (HWSON 6) packages.
Key benefits of the NPS4053 include:
Smaller footprint: The NPS4053 is an integrated circuit (IC), which provides a smaller footprint than a comparable network of discrete components. This can save space on the PCB and simplify circuit design.
Superior system protection: The NPS4053 includes a number of features that help to protect the system, such as programmable current limiting, “true” reverse current blocking, and a fault indicator pin.
Wide range of applications: The NPS4053 is suitable for a wide range of applications, including portable devices, desktops, docking stations, and automotive infotainment systems.
