Texas Instruments TPS1HB08-Q1 Smart High-Side Switch


Texas Instruments TPS1HB08-Q1 Smart High-Side Switch is intended for use in 12V automotive systems. The device integrates robust protection and diagnostic features to ensure output port protection, even during harmful events like short circuits in automotive systems. The device protects against faults through a reliable current limit, which, depending on the device variant, is adjustable from 6.4A to 70A or set at 94A. The high current limit range allows for usage in loads that require large transient currents, while the low current limit range provides improved protection for loads that do not require high peak currents. The device is capable of reliably driving a wide range of load profiles.

The TPS1HB08-Q1 also provides a high accuracy analog current sense that allows for improved load diagnostics. By reporting load current and device temperature to a system MCU, the device enables predictive maintenance and load diagnostics that improve the system lifetime. The TPS1HB08-Q1 is available in an HTSSOP package, which allows for a reduced PCB footprint.
