Maxim MAX15095 Hot-Swap/Electronic Circuit Breaker ICs are an integrated solution for hot-swap applications requiring the safe insertion and removal of circuit line cards from a live backplane. They can also be used as electronic circuit breakers for hard drives, solid-state drives, and fans. The devices integrate a hot-swap controller (10.6mΩ typ) power MOSFET and electronic circuit-breaker protection in a single package. The devices are designed for protection of 2.7V to 18V supply voltages. These devices implement a foldback current limit during startup to control inrush current, lowering di/dt and keeping the MOSFET operating under safe operating area (SOA) conditions.
