Kinetic Technologies’ Enters the Automotive Market with AEC Q100 Qualified 6A, Reverse Battery Protected Load Switches with OVP

KTS1640Q and KTS1641Q: 40V Automotive OVP Load Switches Protect
Against Reverse Battery to -28V

SAN JOSE, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–lt;a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/CES2019?src=hash" target="_blank"gt;#CES2019lt;/agt;–Power management leader Kinetic Technologies has announced their entry
into the Automotive market with two new additions to their innovative
power-management solutions; the KTS1640Q and the KTS1641Q. These
reverse-battery protected load switches with OVP control protect system
loads from the harsh environment of automotive.

“The move into the Automotive market, signals an important milestone for
Kinetic Technologies,” says David Nam, Vice President of Kinetic
Technologies, “and cements our position as the leading provider for
robust protection and efficient power management solutions.”

He continues, “The KTS1640Q and KTS1641Q are our first AEC Q100
qualified products and are specifically designed to protect automotive
systems against the rigorous demands of the automotive environment.
These 40-volt switches not only protect from reverse battery conditions
down to -28 volts, but also feature overvoltage protection, turning off
the load if the input voltage exceeds an internally set voltage.”

Both switches operate from a wide input supply voltage of 6 volts to 24
volts and can withstand an input voltage up to +40V. Each switch
features an internally set overvoltage trip point that will turn-off the
switch when exceeded. The KTS1640Q has an OVP trip point of 27V, while
the KTS1641Q has an OVP trip-point of 20.3V. An active low-enable pin
allows the switch to be enabled or disabled, placing the device in
low-current shutdown mode, and system monitoring is provided by a fault FLAG.
A battery detect pin (BDET) provides an always ON, reverse battery
protected input supply that can be used to power controller modules.
Over-temperature shutdown safety protection is provided with auto-retry.
The KTS1640Q and KTS1641Q is also fully ESD protected to comply with the
IEC61000-4-2 (Level 4) specification.

The KTS1640Q and KTS1641Q are available in an advanced, green compliant,
TDFN44-12 package.

Key applications for the KTS1640Q and KTS1641Q include automotive load
switching, reverse power supply protection, industrial and medical
systems, portable instrumentation and telecom, server and networking

The KTS1640Q and KTS1641Q are fully AEC Q100 qualified, available and
shipping now. Visit Kinetic
