A Type-C load switch is an advanced unidirectional N-channel power switch designed to automatically isolate a system from a faulty source or load. It includes under-voltage protection, reverse current protection, over-temperature protection, programmable over-voltage protection, and/or programmable current limit. Type-C load switches provide protection for two main use cases:

  • Consumer use-case where a portable device is being charged. The load switches protects the system from reverse connector plug-in OVP surges or a faulty wall adapter or external supply.
  • Provider use-case where a portable device is providing power to an external load. The load switch protects the system from an over-current, short circuit, or reverse current caused by a faulty load.
