JAJSGA9C September 2018 – September 2019 ISO1500
The ISO1500 device has a thermal shutdown circuit to protect against damage when a fault condition occurs. A driver output short circuit or bus contention condition can cause the driver current to increase significantly which increases the power dissipation inside the device. An increase in the die temperature is monitored and the device is disabled when the die temperature becomes 170℃ (typical) which lets the device decrease the temperature. The device is enabled when the junction temperature becomes 163℃ (typical).
