Kinetic Technologies Adds To Its Surge Rated Overvoltage Protection IC Portfolio To Increase Protection To Low Voltage Systems From Supply Faults Up To +28V

SAN JOSE, CALIF.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--

Power management leader Kinetic Technologies announced the addition of KTS1650B to their innovative power-management portfolio. The KTS1650B is the first single channel overvoltage protection IC to incorporate their leadership ±200V surge protection technology to actively protect low-voltage systems from supply faults of up to +28VDC.

“The KTS1650B gives customers the ability to not only provide higher protection levels for new designs, but also upgrade existing systems due to pin compatibility with earlier generations of products,” says Kinetic Technologies Vice President David Nam. “The switch features a standard 36mΩ on-resistance high current integrated MOSFET, which actively protects low-voltage systems from voltage supply faults. When paired with an internal clamp, devices are protected from surges up to ±200V. Any input voltage exceeding this threshold causes the internal MOSFET to switch off, preventing excessive voltage from damaging protected downstream devices.”

The KTS1650B features an internally fixed OVLO threshold preset to 6.4V, which can be manually adjusted with an optional external resistor divider to a voltage between 4V and 22V.

The device, which has a maximum current capability of 4.5A, also features an automatic shut-down function when an over-current or over-temperature fault is detected.

The KTS1650B is available in a Restriction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS) and Green compliant 12-Bump, 2.156mm x 1.486mm WLCSP.

Key applications for the KTS1650B by Kinetic Technologies include smartphones, tablets, peripherals, IoT, WAP or STB.

The KTS1650B is available and shipping now. Visit Kinetic Technologies for more information.
