KTS1698 is a low-resistance, high-current load switch with soft-start, over-voltage protection, reverse-current blocking, over-current protection, short-circuit protection, over-temperature protection, and integrated TVS. It is optimized to protect systems with USB Type-C PD ports and barrel connectors that sink up to 100W at 20V and must withstand up to 29V on VBUS.

Automatic reverse-current blocking acts as an “ideal diode” and isolates VBUS when charging or powering the system via another port. Soft-start limits inrush current when turning on with large capacitors at the output. The integrated TVS provides IEC industry standard ESD and ±90V surge ratings. An ACOK flag indicates when power is good.

KTS1698 is packaged in advanced, fully “green” compliant, 2.62 x 1.64mm, 15-bump Wafer-Level Chip-Scale Package (WLCSP).
