Infineon Technologies Smart High-Side Power Switch

Infineon Technologies BTS50025-1TAD is a smart high-side power switch specially designed for driving current loads up to 60A and replacing relays, fuses, and discrete circuits in harsh automotive applications such as switched battery couplings, power distribution switches, heaters, and glow plugs. 

The power stage consists of a 2.5mΩ N-Channel power transistor and charge pump that operates with nominal source voltages from 8V to 18V. The device can be driven by logic inputs as low as 3.3V and has embedded current sensing, diagnostic and protection functions. Protection functions include Infineon’s ReverSave technology for reverse battery protection, Infineon Inversave for robustness against inverse operation, and Infineon SMART CLAMPING for protection against transients. 

Infineon’s BTS50025-1TAD is AEC-Q100 qualified.
