Using ideal diodes for reverse battery & current protection

Details

Date: July 12, 2019

Chances are that design engineers have historically thought of diodes or P-Channel MOSFETs as easy-enough solutions for input power protection. However, diodes and FETs come with pretty significant tradeoffs. See how an ideal diode can be used to improve things like thermal efficiency in reverse current & reverse battery circuits.
