Load switch provides a slew of advantages

Sunnyvale, Calif. – Advanced Analogic Technologies’ AAT4280A family of p-channel MOSFET devices features flexible turn-on and turn-off characteristics&#8212from very fast to slew-rate limited&#8212for high-side load-switching in portable device applications. “As portable system processors and chipsets continue to push operating voltages lower with each new generation, they need load switches capable of supporting lower voltages,” said Kin Shum, director of Strategic Marketing. “By integrating slew-rate control, support for 1.5-volt input, and an extremely low quiescent current, the AAT4280A gives designers the control they need to drive down power consumption and build a more competitive portable product.”
