Hot-Swap Controller And Circuit Breaker Protects External Power MOSFETs

The Picor PI2211 hot-swap controller and circuit breaker doubles the power protection in systems where hot-swap capability is essential. It provides power transient protection during live card insertion and withdrawal from a backplane, as well as when over-current or circuit breaker faults occur during steady-state operation. The PI2211 also can conserve board space and eliminate the need for external transient …
