Additionally, these devices are the only fully integrated automotive-grade USB protectors, combining several automotive-specific benefits, including short-to-battery and short-to-ground protections, which are required in today’s harsh automotive environment. These devices are ideal for automotive radio, navigation, connectivity, and USB hub applications.
Maxim also offers system-level modeling and simulation support to achieve the best performance for customer-specific applications. The integrated host-charger detection circuitry and the adjustable current capability (3A) allow the USB peripheral devices to be charged quickly and efficiently. The industry’s lowest on-resistance BUS switch minimizes line drop, ensuring USB compliance.
