1A load-switch comes in plastic package
The SLG59M1446V is designed to switch power rails at voltages of 1.0 to 5.0V, up to 1A continuous current and 1.5A peak current. Target applications are mobile devices, board-space constrained and battery-powered systems.
Although Silego (Santa Clara, Calif.) is fabless, with operations in Taiwan and additional design and technology centers in China, Korea and Ukraine, it has its own copper-FET process, which is claims provides an advantage when applied to sub-micron power switches. The company did not indicate where it is getting CuFET load switches manufactured.
Each channel can be configured and enabled independently. This device features a linear voltage ramp even under dynamic loading conditions. The ramp rate on each channel can be independently adjusted using external resistors. The part requires a VDD of 2.5 to 5.25V and has a standby current below 1-microamp.
"The CuFET technology allows devices that are both high performance and ultra-small, compatible with standard high reliability plastic packaging." said Nathan John, Silego’s director of product marketing, in a statement.
