Implementing an Overcurrent Protection Device

Figure 1. Overcurrent Protection Application Circuit with the SLG46116V chip

Overcurrent protection is protection against excessive currents or current beyond the acceptable current rating of the device. To protect downstream loads, the point of overcurrent protection should occur at the FET switch. An overcurrent protection device can be implemented using a GreenPAKS
