ON Semiconductor’s SMART HotPlug™ ICs Deliver Unparalleled Design Ease for Hot-Swap Protection of Computing and Telecom Circuit Boards


New devices integrate analog controller, power MOSFET and resistor to simplify design of hot-swap protection and lower component count by 75 percent

PHOENIX, Ariz. – Oct. 31, 2003 – ON Semiconductor (NASDAQ: ONNN) today introduced SMART HotPlug™ - a new series of smart, highly-integrated devices that simplify the implementation of hot swap power protection on boards that are regularly switched in and out of powered-up computing and telecom systems. These rugged and reliable new devices - ideal for distributed power systems, high availability servers, disk arrays and powered board insertion – help eliminate costly down-times due to bus glitches, overloads or short circuits.

The NIS5101 is the first SMART HotPlug™ device in a family of integrated hot-swap protection circuits ON Semiconductor is scheduled to launch this year. This debut device is designed to allow safe insertion and removal of electronic equipment to -48 volt (V) backplanes. More News
