The IPS8160HQ and IPS8160HQ-1 are monolithic devices designed with STMicroelectronics VIPower M0-3 technology, intended to drive any kind of load with one side connected to ground. They can be driven by using a 3.3 V logic supply.
They are suitable for applications with up to 0.7 A (IPS8160HQ) or 1 A (IPS8160HQ-1) steady-state operating current.
Active current limitation combined with thermal shutdown and automatic restart protect the devices against overload. In overload conditions, the channel turns OFF and ON again automatically to maintain the junction temperature between TJSD and TR. If this condition causes the case temperature to trigger TCSD, then overloaded channels are turned OFF and can be turned back ON only when the case temperature decreases down to TCR. Non-overloaded channels continue to operate normally.
The devices automatically turn OFF in case of ground pin disconnection.
Devices are especially suitable for industrial applications conforming to IEC 61131.
