This application note discusses the benefits of using Texas Instruments ideal diode controllers in reverse battery protection and ORing applications. The report discusses performance of the LM74700-Q1 Ideal diode controller during front-end input protection tests such as dynamic reverse polarity, input micro-short, and power line disturbance and compares it to existing methods. Key features such as low forward conduction loss, fast reverse recovery, true reverse current blocking, and fast load transient response enables the ideal diode controller LM74700-Q1 to provide more efficient and robust reverse battery protection.
Key benefits such as low forward conduction loss, reduced leakage, and simplified load sharing enables the ideal diode controller to OR power supplies more efficiently and reliably.
