The VN5E006ASP-E is a single channel high-side driver manufactured using ST proprietary VIPower® M0-5 technology and housed in PowerSO-10 package. The device is designed to drive 12 V automotive grounded loads delivering protection, diagnostics. It also implements a 3 V and 5 V CMOS-compatible interface for use with any microcontroller.

The device integrates advanced protective functions such as load current limitation, inrush and overload active management by power limitation, overtemperature shut-off with auto-restart and overvoltage active clamp. A dedicated analog current sense pin is associated with every output channel providing enhanced diagnostic functions including fast detection of overload and short-circuit to ground through power limitation indication, over-temperature indication, short-circuit to VCCdiagnosis and on-state and off-state open-load detection. The current sensing and diagnostic feedback of the whole device can be disabled by pulling the DE pin low to share the external sense resistor with similar devices.
