The LM25069 positive hot swap controller provides intelligent control of the power supply voltage to the load during insertion and removal of circuit cards from a live system backplane or other "hot" power sources. The LM25069 provides in-rush current control to limit system voltage droop and transients. The current limit and power dissipation in the external series pass N-Channel MOSFET are programmable, ensuring operation within the Safe Operating Area (SOA). The POWER GOOD output indicates when the output voltage is within 1.3V of the input voltage. The input under-voltage and over-voltage lockout levels and hysteresis are programmable, as well as the initial insertion delay time and fault detection time. The LM25069-1 latches off after a fault detection, while the LM25069-2 automatically restarts at a fixed duty cycle. The LM25069 is available in a 10 pin VSSOP package.
