The TPS2559 power-distribution switch is intended for applications where a low
resistance, precision current limit switch is required or heavy capacitive loads are encountered.
The TPS2559 provides up to 5.5 A of continuous load current with a precise current limit set by a
single resistor to ground. Output current is maintained at a safe level by switching into a
constant-current mode when the output load exceeds the current-limit threshold. During overload
events the output current is limited to the level set by R(ILIM). If a
persistent overload occurs, the device goes into thermal shutoff to prevent damage to the
The power-switch rise and fall times are controlled to minimize current surges during
turn on or off. The FAULT logic output asserts low during overcurrent or
