The VNQ5E160K-E is a quad channel high-side driver manufactured in the ST proprietary VIPower M0-5 technology and housed in the tiny PowerSSO-24 package.
The VNQ5E160K-E is designed to drive automotive grounded loads delivering protection, diagnostics and easy 3V and 5V CMOS-compatible interface with any microcontroller.
The device integrates advanced protective functions such as load current limitation, inrush and overload active management by power limitation, over-temperature shut-off with auto-restart and over-voltage active clamp.
A dedicated active low digital status pin is associated with every output channel in order to provide Enhanced diagnostic functions including fast detection of overload and short-circuit to ground, over-temperature indication, short-circuit to VCC diagnosis and ON & OFF state open-load detection.
The diagnostic feedback of the whole device can be disabled by pulling the STAT_DIS pin up, thus allowing wired-ORing with other similar devices.
Inrush current active management by power limitation Very low stand-by current 3.0V CMOS compatible inputs Optimized electromagnetic emissions Very low electromagnetic susceptibility In compliance with the 2002/95/EC european directive
Undervoltage shutdown Overvoltage clamp Load current limitation Self limiting of fast thermal transients Protection against loss of ground and loss of VCC Over-temperature shutdown with autorestart (thermal shutdown) Reverse battery protected (a) Electrostatic discharge protection
