The Monolithic Power Systems EVQ5850-J-00A evaluation board demonstrates the capabilities of the MPQ5850, a 36 V smart diode controller with reverse protection.
The MPQ5850 diode controller can drive an external N-channel MOSFET to replace a Schottky diode for reverse input protection. The 20 mV ultra-low dropout minimizes power loss and enables a low minimum input voltage, which makes the MPQ5850 well-suited to cold-crank conditions in automotive applications.
The 4 μA shutdown current also makes the MPQ5850 ideal for battery-powered applications. The ultra-fast transient response meets the requirements of the ISO16750 standard.
The EVQ5850-J-00A board is fully assembled and tested.
