    4. 3 Conclusion


Monitoring overcurrent conditions with VDS monitors is an easy to way detect what type of short circuit condition occurred. With a SPI interface, designers can quickly identify the location of the overcurrent condition and take action appropriately to prevent any system damage and draw conclusions on what type of overcurrent condition occurred.
