The VNL5160N3-E and VNL5160S5-E are monolithic devices, made using STMicroelectronics®VIPower®Technology, intended for driving resistive or inductive loads with one side connected to the battery. Built-in thermal shutdown protects the chip from overtemperature and short circuit. Output current limitation protects the devices in an overload condition. In the case of a long duration overload, the device limits the dissipated power to a safe level up to thermal shutdown intervention. Thermal shutdown, with automatic restart, allows the device to recover normal operation as soon as a fault condition disappears. Fast demagnetization of inductive loads is achieved at turn-off.
