Diodes – Rutronik includes new Resettable Fuse in its program
By allowing a product to restart, the device enables a reduction in unnecessary field returns. The NIS5132 is available at distributor Rutronik as of now.
Operating over a wide input voltage range from 9V up to 18V, and provided in the small, low-profile DFN-3030-10 package, the 3.6A-rated NIS5132 integrates a low on-resistance NMOS buffer and an internal current limit. With the buffer’s typical RDS(ON) of only 30mΩ and with no need for an external sense resistor in the load path, the device minimizes voltage drop and power loss.
To fully safeguard downstream power components from damage or premature aging, the fuse’s protection features include under-voltage lockout, turn-on ramp control, current-limit and thermal shutdown circuits. This thermal shutdown can be either latching type (NIS5132MN1) or auto-retry type (NIS5132MN2).
