ABLIC Launches the S-19682/3 Series, the Industry’s Smallest (*1) High-side Switch with Camera/Antenna Connection Diagnosis for Automotive Use

The ultra-small HSNT-8(2030) package and a wide variety of diagnosis functions makes the new product improve safety and reduces ECU size


 ABLIC Inc. (President: Nobumasa Ishiai, head office: Minato-ku, Tokyo, hereinafter “ABLIC”) today launched the S-19682/3 Series of high-side switches for automotive use.

 A high-side switch is a semiconductor that uses external signals to turn circuits ON and OFF thereby controlling the power supply by turning the switch ON and OFF. Since the S-19682/3 Series high-side switch for connection diagnosis launched today comes with a current monitor function, the ECU can easily monitor current flowing through cameras and antennas. This capability enables the S-19682/3 Series to diagnose camera/sensor/antenna connection status and turn off the switch to disconnect the load in the event of connection errors or faults. Also equipped with a current limit function, it prevents the flow of overcurrent to provide safer design.

 As a one-channel per package product, the S-19682/3 Series uses the industry’s smallest (*1) HSNT8(2.0x3.0xt0.5mm) package and therefore has a footprint per channel that is the industry’s smallest when compared to multi-channel products. Small size contributes to design freedom and equipped with the earlier mentioned connection diagnosis function, this Series is fully equipped to meet the automotive requirements of the latest ADAS/AD systems.

Moreover, the S-19682/3 Series is PPAP (Production Part Approval Process)-capable and also meets the AEC(*)-Q100 Grade1 (* Automotive Electronics Council) quality standard for automotive ICs.

Major Features 

  1. Industry’s smallest class! Housed in an ultra-small HSNT-8(2030) (2.0 x 3.0 x t0.5mm) package
  2. High-accuracy current limit
  3. Connection diagnosis of a wide variety of applications
  4. A variety of protection functions ensure customer safety
