The LM5060 high-side protection controller provides intelligent control of a high-sideN-channel MOSFET during normal on/off transitions and fault conditions. In-rush current iscontrolled by the nearly constant rise time of the output voltage. A POWER GOOD output indicateswhen the output voltage reaches the input voltage and the MOSFET is fully on. Input UVLO (withhysteresis) is provided as well as programmable input OVP. An enable input provides remote on oroff control. The programmable UVLO input can be used as second enable input for safety redundancy.A single capacitor programs the initial start-up VGS fault detection delaytime, the transition VDS fault detection delay time, and the continuousover-current VDS fault detection delay time. When a detected fault conditionpersists longer than the allowed fault delay time, the MOSFET is latched off until either theenable input or the UVLO input is toggled low and then high.
