eFuse and hot swap controllers

System-level power path protection

Improve the reliability of your system against overvoltage, short circuit, inrush current and reverse polarity events. We’ve taken our single-chip ICs one step further than traditional eFuse devices by implementing discrete protection circuitry for the most robust device and system-level protection.  Get started with our eFuse for a tiny, thermally optimized option or choose a hot swap controller with an external pass FET if your design requires more flexibility.

Power path protection

An eFuse is a fully integrated protection device that protects against short circuit, inrush, overvoltage or reverse polarity events. Hot swaps provide similar protection for greater than 15A current rating requirements.

Simple & efficient design

Eliminate the complexity of selecting and optimizing your pass FET and discrete protection components. With our integrated solutions, you can reduce your PCB area by up to 70%.

Fast time to market

Reduce circuit design and testing time by selecting eFuses that meet the criteria for various safety and performance certification standards such as Underwriters Laboratories (UL) recognition.
