Intelligent power switches

ST offers a series of intelligent power switches (IPS) for high-side and low-side configurations. These devices integrate the control section (logic interface, drivers, diagnostic and protection features) and the power stage on the same chip, with benefits in terms of compactness, increased system reliability and cost effectiveness.

ST‘s IPS can be used in combination with any industrial load, resistive, inductive or capacitive.

Intelligent Power Switches

Highly-efficient dual-channel high-side switches with extended diagnostics and embedded smart load management

ST's new series of Intelligent Power Switches (IPS) offer a unique smart load management feature enabling to drive any kind of load properly including resistive, inductive, or capacitive loads. The IPS2050H and IPS2050H-32 offer outstanding robustness and the widest supply voltage range up to 65V for the best reliability. The ICs differ by current limitation levels, which are in both cases selectable, ranging from 2.5A up to 23A.

The embedded power stages ensure very efficient operation with the smallest power dissipation thanks to the 25mΩ ON resistance.

The switches are fully compliant to IEC 61000-4-2, IEC 61000-4-4 and IEC 61000-4-5 specifications for ESD, fast-transient burst and surge achieving high EMC immunity.
