The VN340SP-E is a monolithic device developed using ST VIPower™ technology, intended to drive four independent resistive or inductive loads with one side connected to ground. Active current limitation avoids dropping the system power supply in case of shorted load. Built-in thermal shutdown protects the chip from overtemperature and short-circuit. The open drain diagnostic output indicates overtemperature conditions. Each I/O is pulled down when the overtemperature condition of the relative channel is verified.
