11 Design Tips and Tradeoffs For Using Power Switches

July 30, 2019 by Texas Instruments


White Paper Overview

There are a variety of power switch topologies with different functions that address different applications. 

For example, load switches establish the power switch foundation by providing a safe and reliable distribution of power. eFuses and Hot Swap controllers are ideal for hot-plug and transient events that would otherwise damage system components. These benefits help to ultimately reduce system maintenance costs and maximize equipment uptime. 

Take a tour of the different power switch topologies in an instructive white paper from Texas Instruments. Start identifying the correct solutions for your needs and ultimately achieve faster design time.
