The TPS25940 eFuse Power Switch is a compact, feature rich power management device with a full suite of protection functions, including a low power DevSleep™ mode that supports compliance with the SATA™ Device Sleep standard. The wide operating range allows control of many popular DC bus voltages. Integrated back to back FETs provide bidirectional current control making the device well suited for systems with load side holdup energy that must not drain back to a failed supply bus.

Load, source and device protection are provided with many programmable features including overcurrent, dVo/dt ramp and overvoltage, undervoltage thresholds. For system status monitoring and downstream load control, the device provides PGOOD, FLT and precise current monitor output. Precise programmable undervoltage, overvoltage thresholds and the low IQ DevSleep mode simplify SSD power management design.

The TPS25940 monitors V(IN) and V(OUT) to provide true reverse current blocking when V(IN) < (V(OUT) - 10 mV). This function supports swift changeover to a boosted voltage energy storage element in systems where backup voltage is greater than bus voltage.

e-Fuse Power Switch with DevSleep SATA Interface
TIDA-00429 TPS25940A provides a dedicated DevSleep interface terminal (DEVSLP) to force the device in low power mode. The DEVSLP pin is compatible with standard hardware signals asserted from the host controller. When pulled high, it puts the device in low power DevSleep mode. In this mode, the quiescent (...)

Last Gasp Hold Up Energy Storage Solution
TIDA-00304 This solution stores and delivers "last gasp" energy for systems, such as SSDs, that require functionality for a short time after power loss in order to shut down in a controlled fashion. By storing holdup energy at higher than bus voltage the amount of capacitance can be reduced by up to 80 (...)
