Ultra-low consumption load switches ready to ship

Littelfuse’s LQ050XX integrated load switch ICs are designed to offer industry’s highest performance with ultra-low power consumption. They are engineered to reduce parasitic leakage currents, improve system efficiency and extend battery life. Applications include wearables, smart homes, IoT devices, virtual reality, smart metering and medical devices.

The ICs are available in housing sizes ranging from 0.77 by 0.77 by 0.46mm to 0.97 by 1.47 by 0.55mm. The switches are said to be robust, power-saving and can deliver market-leading performance regarding low quiescent current and switch-off current.

As an example, the LQ05021QCS4 delivers 2A rated power. The integrated slew rate control improves system reliability and reduces voltage fluctuations on the bus. Together with its efficiency, it is ideal for applications such as IoT or wearables.

The LQ05041QCS6 is rated 4A. With six bumps and measuring 0.97 by 1.47 by 0.55 mm, it is particularly small and primarily used in data storage and the medical sector.
