Implementing an Overcurrent Protection Device

Overcurrent protection is protection against excessive currents or current beyond the acceptable current rating of the device. To protect downstream loads, the point of overcurrent protection should occur at the FET switch. An overcurrent protection device can be easily implemented using a GreenPAK 3 SLG46116V chip. The SLG46116 includes a P-FET Power Switch designed for load switching applications. The P-FET Power Switch can be controlled internally via the ON digital input of the P-FET Power Switch component in GreenPAK Designer, allowing the user to generate integrated mixed-signal control circuits.

Digital Optical Tachometer using GreenPAK

This tachometer can be used to measure the RPM (revolutions per minute) of a rotating object. In this application note, GreenPAK SLG46533V is used to design an optical contactless tachometer with the use of an infrared sensor. The measurement range of this tachometer is 1 - 9999 rpm, with an accuracy of 0.01%, this would give an accuracy of less than 1 rpm in all readings. This design can be modified to suit other requirements such as, changing the sensor sensitivity, changing the distance of measurement from the rotating object, etc.

Supercapacitor-Based Backup Solutions: A Design Toolkit

There are several unique challenges when we attempt to use supercapacitors in a backup solution.

The following “toolkit” of design ideas addresses a specific problem and suggests a solution — or the essence of it­ — in the form of a design “fragment”. This fragment in each case consists of a partial hardware schematic and a partial GreenPAK Designer diagram. A product designer can therefore pick the ones that are most relevant in a given context and integrate them into a custom solution. The GreenPAK Designer diagrams presented here are shown using the SLG46537V, Silego’s Configurable Mixed-signal IC (CMIC), but can be usually reconfigured to work on other GreenPAK products as well with only minor modifications, if at all.

Silego SLG59H1302C power splitter

The SLG59H1302C's 130 V surge protection rating is 30% stronger than the competition and its 20-nanosecond reaction time to OVP events is at least seven times faster, Silego claims. Its faster OVP response time protects sensitive downstream components from possible damage.

USB-C power splitter/switch is 130-V surge-protected & 28-V tolerant

Mixed-signal IC maker Silego – most often featured here for its configurable analogue/small-logic-function parts – has added a part that steps up levels of robustness for system protection when that systems is equipped with USB type C interfaces. It combines two high-performance, low on-resistance n-channel FETs and fast over-voltage protection to make a very robust single-input, dual-output power splitter.
