Texas Instruments  TPS2590EVM

The EVM is a 3-V to 18-V module using the TPS2590/91 hot-swap controller with integrated MOSFET. At power on, the output is power limited to control inrush current and protect the MOSFET. On an over-current condition, the controller interrupts power to the load at high speed and signals load status. Operating current, fault current and fault timer settings are hardware programmable
