Hot Swap Controller protects low power boards.

Integrating power MOSFET and sense resistor, 5 A Model LTC4219 protects boards with load supply voltages from 2.9-15 V, allowing boards to be safely inserted and removed from live backplane. During start-up, inrush currents are controlled by limiting gate ramp rate to 0.3 V/ms. Load current is monitored using voltage sensed across internal 7.5 mW sense resistor and adjusting internal 33 mW MOSFET...
