Automotive-Compliant USB Type-C Port Protector from Diodes Incorporated Offers Overvoltage and Short Circuit Protection with Low Insertion Loss
There has been increasing adoption of the USB Type-C interface, particularly by automotive manufacturers keen to provide future-proof ports for smart devices and other peripherals. As a result, many design engineers are now looking for simple but effective solutions to provide in-line protection for the data lines of USB Type-C ports.
The DPO2039DABQ features low insertion loss, with an on-resistance of typically 300mΩ and equivalent capacitance of 50pF or less, meaning it has no negative impact on the bandwidth of the data lines. The DPO2039DABQ’s high level of ESD protection also removes the need for external transient voltage suppressors.
The DPO2039DABQ integrates high-performance MOSFETs, gate drivers, and control logic to isolate the data lines if a fault condition is detected. The typical overvoltage fault detection response time is 100ns. Thermal shutdown is preconfigured with a threshold of +150°C and +20°C hysteresis.
The DPO2039DABQ is available now, priced at
