The ITS42k5D-LD-F is a 2.5Ω dual channel high-side power switch and
optimized for driving all types of resistive, inductive and capacitive loads.

This circuit demonstrates the short circuit with current limitation features of the
ITS42k5D-LD-F. Many other switches provide similar protection features.

Once short circuit condition occurs, the load current increases dramatically and
the instantaneous power in the switch is maintained at a safe value by limiting
the current to the maximum current allowed in the switch (IOUTL1, 2) of about
