eFuse and Hot Swap Controllers

Reliable power path protection

TI’s portfolio of eFuse and Hot Swap devices have extensive feature options including adjustable current limit, over/under voltage protection, and short circuit or reverse polarity protection. These power path protection devices are used to control load current with integrated or external FETs.
