Maxim's power-switching products simplify system power management by combining control logic with integrated power MOSFETs or drivers for external MOSFETs. These devices add monitoring and safety features such as overvoltage protection (OVP), short-circuit protection, and overtemperature protection.

Our power-switching products are used in USB applications, switch-mode power supplies, and other applications that require current-limiting and overvoltage protection.

Our MOSFET drivers and ORing FET controllers offer a compelling set of features, including highest operating voltages, guaranteed propagation delay matching between controllers, and fastest turn-off. These products are available in both commercial and extended temperature ranges and in the industry's smallest packages.
