Operating over a 3.1V to 18V input voltage range and rated at 3.6A, the NIS5135 integrates an NMOS power device with 30 mΩ R DS(ON) for reduced power loss. It also features an internal current limit that avoids the voltage drop normally incurred by an external sense resistor in the load path. An over-voltage circuit limits the output voltage without shutting the device down, while downstream components are further protected from damage or premature failure by under-voltage lockout (UVLO) and thermal shutdown circuits, with latching (NIS5135MN1) or auto-retry (NIS5135MN2) options.
Supplied in a low profile U-DFN3030-10 package to minimise application footprint, the NIS5135’s standard pin-out allows it to drop into existing designs, providing an alternative lower-cost source for high volume production. NIS5135 is priced at $0.39 (10,000).
