The MIC2546 and MIC2547 are integrated high-side dual power switches optimized for low loss dc power switching and other power management applications, including Advanced Configuration and Power Interface (ACPI). The MIC2546/47 is a cost-effective, highly integrated solution that requires few external components to satisfy USB and ACPI requirements.
Load current management features include a precision resistor-programmable output current-limit and a soft-start circuit which minimizes inrush current when the switch is enabled. Thermal shutdown, along with current-limit, protects theswitch and the attached device.
The MIC2546/47's open-drain flag outputs are used to indicate current-limiting or thermal shutdown to a local controller. The MIC2547 has an additional internal latch which turns the output off upon thermal shutdown providing robust fault control. The enable signal is compatible with both 3V and 5V logic, and is also used asthe thermal shutdown latch reset for the MIC2547.
The MIC2546 and MIC2547 are available in active-high and active-low enable versions in 16-pin TSSOP and SOP packages.
