The VNL5300S5-E is a monolithic device made using STMicroelectronics VIPower technology, intended for driving resistive or inductive loads with one side connected to the battery.Built-in thermal shutdown protects the chip from overtemperature and short-circuit. Output current limitation protects the device in an overload condition. In case of long duration overload, the device limits the dissipated power to a safe level up to thermal shutdown intervention. Thermal shutdown, with automatic restart, allows the device to recover normal operation as soon as a fault condition disappears. Fast demagnetization of inductive loads is achieved at turn-off.
