Load switch serves small portables

Malvern, Penna. – Vishay’s SiP4610A/B protected high-side load switch, working from a 2.2- to 5.5-volt input for battery switching, USB peripheral ports, notebook computers and various hot-swapping applications, can handle a continuous output current of up to 1 amp. Designers can set the device’s current limit using a single (external) resistor.
