The TPS255x and TPS255x-1 power-distribution switches are intended for applications where precision current limiting is required or heavy capacitive loads and short circuits are encountered and provide up to 1.5 A of continuous load current. These devices offer a programmable current-limit threshold between 75 mA and 1.7 A (typical) through an external resistor. Current-limit accuracy as tight as ±6% can be achieved at the higher current-limit settings. 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 using a constant-current mode when the output load exceeds the current-limit threshold. TPS255x-1 devices provide circuit breaker functionality by latching off the power switch during overcurrent or reverse-voltage situations. An internal reverse-voltage comparator disables the power-switch when the output voltage is driven higher than the input to protect devices on the input side of the switch. The FAULT output asserts low during overcurrent and reverse-voltage conditions.
NEW - You can choose different carrier options based on the quantity of parts, including full reel, custom reel, cut tape, tube or tray.
A custom reel
is a continuous length of cut tape from one reel to maintain lot- and date-code traceability, built to the exact quantity requested. Following industry standards, a brass shim connects an 18-inch leader and trailer on both sides of the cut tape for direct feeding into automated assembly machines. TI includes a reeling fee for custom reel orders.
Cut tape is a length of tape cut from a reel. TI may fulfill orders using multiple strips of cut tapes or boxes to satisfy the quantity requested.TI often ships
devices inside a box or in the tube or tray, depending on inventory availability. We pack all tapes, tubes or sample boxes according to internal electrostatic discharge and moisture-sensitivity-level protection requirements.
