The TPS255x power-distribution switch is intended for applications where precision current limiting is required or heavy capacitive loads and short circuits are encountered. These devices offer a programmable current-limit threshold between 500 mA and 5 A (typical) through an external resistor. The power-switch rise and fall times are controlled to minimize current surges during turnon and turnoff.

TPS255x devices limit the output current to a safe level by switching into a constant-current mode when the output load exceeds the current-limit threshold. The FAULT logic output asserts low during overcurrent and overtemperature conditions.

TPS2557DRBEVM-423 — TPS2557DRBEVM-423: Evaluation Module for TPS2557

The TPS2556EVM-423 and TPS2557EVM-423 are evaluation modules (EVM) for Texas Instruments power-distribution switches with adjustable current-limit. These EVMs operate over a 2.5-V to 6.5-V range. An on-board jumper sets the output current-limit to either 0.5 A or 1 A. The board is designed for the (...)
