Smart Load SwitchesSmart Load Switches - When switches are used to turn loads on and off, often external circuitry is needed to achieve desired functions. The Vishay smart load switch combines all this functionality in a single IC. As the features of this IC, a simplified GPIO control can be used to implement power distribution and sequencing of multiple-sub-systems. Slew-rate control load switches provide a controlled supply ramp, reducing inrush current.  The output node has a defined decay with quick output discharge and does not leave the node floating.  More...
