PROFET™ +12V | Automotive Smart High-Side Switch
Infineon’s PROFET™+ 12V (PROtected FET) family consists of single, dual and 4-channel protected high-side power switches in PG-DSO-8 and PG-DSO-14 exposed pad package. With an RDSon from 8 mΩ to 200 mΩ, they are capable to drive loads from 0.5A up to 10A. The automotive qualified high-side switches are well established in the market. Indeed, the SMART6 technology has been proven in the market for almost 10 years. Since its release in 2010 over 1 billion PROFET™+ 12V were delivered worldwide.
Similar to the other Smart Switches Families, the protected 12V high-side switches of Infineon offer protection against overload, overvoltage, short-circuit, excessive temperature, loss of ground, power supply loss and Electrostatic Discharge (ESD). Their particularity, though, is their very high short-circuit and energy robustness. Combined with the switching load capability of the whole 12V family, they make an outstanding feature for the market. For more information, please go to the section “Why using PROFET™+ 12V” below.
A unique feature of the PROFET™+ 12V family is the pin-compatibility with the PROFET™+ 24V family and within each of the individual family devices. The products are also pin-compatible with other power switch ICs of Infineon in TSON-14, PG-DSO-14 and PG-DSO-8 exposed pad packages. Based on the identical footprint of its packages, a maximum design flexibility is provided, allowing the designer to change loads and drivers without major modification of the board layout, saving him time and effort.
PROFET™+ 12V are qualified for automotive applications such as lighting, body control modules (BCM) and heating. The protected high-side switches are able to drive resistive, inductive and capacitive loads. With their vast range of smart features PROFET™+ 12V also replace electromechanical relays, fuses and discrete circuits or can be used for industrial applications.
