Three-Level Configurable Slew-Rate Controlled Power Switch from Diodes Incorporated Simplifies and Enhances Power-Rail Management in Solid State Drives

PLANO, Texas–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Diodes Incorporated (Diodes) (Nasdaq: DIOD) has launched a brand new versatile single-channel high-side energy swap. The DIODES™ AP22980 options three completely different selectable slew charges, in order that wider capacitance masses could be dealt with whereas preserving inrush currents down, making certain system stability. This energy swap is focused on the solid-state knowledge storage techniques used in transportable digital gear, laptop {hardware}, and edge-based knowledge heart deployments.

The N-channel MOSFET, with a built-in cost pump contained in the AP22980, has a particularly low Rds(ON) of 5.1mΩ enabling masses reaching 6A whereas minimizing voltage drops and energy losses in excessive present loading functions. By having a separate VBIAS pin, the minimal enter voltage that it’s able to supporting is considerably decrease, ensuing in a wider enter voltage vary that may be coated – from 0.285V to five.5V – enabling higher software flexibility.

With 60µA (typical) quiescent provide present, the AP22980 is very optimized for conditions the place preserving standby energy consumption down is a precedence. This machine has an operational temperature vary of -40°C to 105°C. If the junction temperature exceeds 150°C, an overtemperature safety mechanism is triggered.

The AP22980 three-level selectable slew fee energy switches are equipped in the compact W-QFN1520 package deal that takes up little board house and eases integration. These units can be found at $0.27 in 1000 piece portions.
