Silego Technology, a developer of configurable and mixed signal products, has introduction its SLG59H1302C - a single-input, dual-output power splitter designed for midrange and high-end smartphones and tablet PCs.
Any IC product designed for consumer electronics and operating in the vicinity of edge connectors must be tolerant of electrical surges and abuses caused by an incorrect application of power adapters. In these applications, system-level, over-voltage protection (OVP) has become a standard requirement. The SLG59H1302C's 130 V surge protection rating is 30% stronger than the competition and its 20-nanosecond reaction time to OVP events is at least seven times faster, Silego claims. Its faster OVP response time protects sensitive downstream components from possible damage. Even though designed to operate with 5 V, 9 V, or 12 V power adapters, the SLG59H1302C does not suffer damage even if 20 V power adapters are mistakenly used.
In applying its MOSFET design IP, Silego's design engineers packaged two high-performance nFET transistors into a 5mm2 WLCSP footprint. The SLG59H1302C's VBUS-to-VOUT RDSON is 47% smaller, and its VBUS-to-VSYS RDSON is 31% smaller than existing solutions, according to Silego.
