GLF Integrated Power offers two versions of AEC-Q100 grade load switch ICs

Two versions of the IQSmart IC load switches are offered by GLF Integrated Power. The AEC-Q100 qualified ICs have a wide temperature range, with one version featuring true reverse current blocking.

The GLF1111Q and GLF1200Q low power load switches are rated for a wide temperature range (-40 to +125 degrees C). The GLF1111Q provides industry-leading, battery-saving leakage current of 2nA, typical, said GLF. 

The GLF1200Q features a true reverse-current blocking, which prevents a backup power source from being discharged when an input node is shorted. The GLF1200Q, therefore, works all of the time regardless of on or off state.

Applications for the GLF1111Q and GLF1200Q include infotainment and cluster display systems, diagnostic systems, passive entry / start systems, customer premise equipment (CPE), face recognition systems and intelligent cockpit and autonomous driving applications. 

Both the GLF1111Q and GLF1200Q IQSmart devices are packaged in a SOT-23-5L and offer easy visual inspection of solder joints. Both ICs also feature integrated slew rate control that limits inrush upon turn on, therefore minimising the effects of voltage droop. 

Each load switch IC supports a wide input voltage range of 1.5 to 5.5V. A single device can therefore be used in a variety of voltage rail applications, helping to simplify inventory management, said GLF. Both ICs are also offered with an optional output discharge switch.

“The GLF1111Q and GLF1200Q address the ever-expanding, evolving range of automotive electronic systems that require a high-performance load switch with a wide-ambient operating temperature range to assure reliable, long-term operations,” explained Eileen Sun, president and CEO at GLF Integrated Power.

GLF integrated Power is a fabless semiconductor company based in Santa Clara, California, USA. It was founded in 2013 in response to the IoT, portable and wearable ‘revolution’. The company supplies efficient, small, silicon power control and protection ICs and has developed IP that enables cost-effective, efficient and differentiated power management solutions.
