Power switches

Power on with solutions for your distribution, protection, or diagnostics needs

Power Switches provide an electrical connection from a voltage source or ground to a load. Our diverse portfolio includes several topologies, from simple load switches to smart power switches. Sequencing, protection against common IC events, diagnostic telemetry, and more is made possible with our power switches.   

Load switches

Load switches are a simple, cost-effective way to turn on and off your power rails. Reduce your BOM count with an integrated load switch and get to market faster.

eFuses & hot swap controllers

These power path protection devices are used to control load current with integrated or external FETs. Get protected with our extensive feature options.

Smart power switches

Drive and protect an inductive, resistive and capacitive load, while providing real-time diagnostics to your automotive and industrial systems.

Ideal diode & OR-ing controllers

Find the right solution to reduce power loss and thermal dissipation, while protecting your system from reverse polarity and reverse current conditions.

Power muxes

Power multiplexers allow you to switch between subsystems with two different voltage levels. Preserve operating conditions with seamless switchover options.

Low side switches

Unlike other power switch topologies, our low side switches utilize an integrated flyback diode to connect the load to ground.
