AP22800
5V SINGLE CHANNEL PROGRAMMABLE LOAD SWITCH
Description
Pin Assignments
The AP22800 is an integrated N-channel load switch, which features
an adjustable ramp-up and discharge rate that are settable via an
external capacitor and a resistor, respectively. In addition, it
incorporates a ‘power good’ output to flag when the switch is
enhanced. The N-channel MOSFET has a typical RDS(ON) of 16mΩ,

The AP22800 is designed to operate from 1.5V to 5.5V making it ideal
for 1.8V, 2.5V, 3.3V, 5V voltage rails. The low quiescent supply
current specification of 21µA makes it ideal for use in battery powered
distribution systems where power consumption is a concern.
The AP22800 is available in a standard Green U-DFN2116-8
package with an exposed PAD for improved thermal performance and
is RoHS compliant.

Application Information
Theory of Operation
The AP22800 is a load switch that can be used to isolate or power-down part of a system in order to reduce power consumption, particularly in
battery-powered devices. The NMOS pass element in the AP22800 is turned on when EN pin is pulled high. This enables the internal charge
pump, which then increases the voltage on the SS pin and provides an overdrive on the gate of the N-channel pass switch.
When the voltage on the gate of the pass switch is around 1.6 times greater than VIN, power is deemed to be good, and the Power Good (PG)
output is pulled high via an external pull-up resistor. The rise-time of the switch is controlled by the value of the capacitor on the SS pin.
When EN is pulled low, the NMOS pass switch turns off and isolates VOUT from VIN. In addition, PG is pulled to ground to indicate that the power
is no longer good. The DIS pin keeps VOUT grounded while EN is low. The fall time on VOUT is largely controlled by the value of the discharge
resistor and the capacitance on the output.
Input and Output Voltage
The Input Voltage (VIN) should be between 1.5V and 5.5V. With the switch activated, the Output Voltage (VOUT) will be the input voltage minus
the voltage drop across the device.
Enable
The GPIO compatible EN input allows the output current to be switched on and off. A high signal (switch on) should be at least 1V, and a low
signal (switch off) no higher than 0.5V. The EN pin should not be left floating. It is advisable to hold EN low when applying or removing power.
Power Good
The PG output is an open drain output that indicates when the pass switch is enhanced enough to deliver current to the load. When the gate
voltage rises to VIN 1.6, PG is pulled high via the external pull-up resistor. For example, if VIN = 5V, then PG goes high when the gate voltage of
the pass switch reaches 8V, thus, providing an overdrive of 3V. PG is pulled low when power is deemed not to be good.
PG can be pulled up to any voltage to a maximum of 5.5V, although it is recommended to utilize VOUT with a resistor greater than 50kΩ. The
advantage of pulling up PG to VOUT is that when EN is low, VOUT is also grounded. Thus, no power is wasted in the pull-up resistor.
If this feature is not required, then PG pin can be left floating.
Input and Output Capacitors
The input and output capacitors should be placed as close to VIN and VOUT pins as possible. The output capacitor should not be greater than the
input capacitor, otherwise, current may flow backwards through the device after turn off. Typically, a 10μF input capacitor and a 1μF output
capacitor should be placed close to VIN and VOUT pins.

Application Information (Cont.)
For heavier loads, it is recommended that the VIN and VOUT trace lengths be kept to a minimum. In addition, a bulk capacitor (≥ 10μF) may also
be placed close to the VOUT pin. If using a bulk capacitor on VOUT, it is important to control the inrush current by choosing an appropriate softstart time in order to minimize the droop on the input supply.
Adjustable Slew Rate/Soft-Start
The SS pin allows the output ramp time of the switch to be controlled using an external capacitor (CSS). The capacitor voltage rises to

approximately twice the value of VIN. Table 1 shows typical rise times (in µs) associated with various timing capacitors at different VIN values.

Table 1. Timing Capacitors and Rise Times
Extra capacitance will allow further increase in rise time if desired. The timing capacitor should have a breakdown voltage of at least 25V to allow
for a high voltage on this pin.
Adjustable Discharge
When EN goes low, VOUT is discharged to ground through the discharge resistor (RDIS). The discharge/fall time on VOUT is largely controlled by
RDIS and by the output capacitor. The data in Table 2 shows typical fall times associated with various discharge resistors with CL = 1μF, for
different values of VIN.

Board Layout and Thermal Considerations
NEW PRODUCT
Due to the high current capacity of the load switch, PCB layout needs to ensure good thermal distribution during operation. The top and bottom of
AP22800EV1, the evaluation board for the AP22800, can be seen below.
Figure 1. PCB Copper Layout & Silk Screen – Top
Figure 2. PCB Copper Layout & Silk Screen – Bottom
Thermal vias are used directly underneath the chip to help distribute the heat from the device. The ground plane on the underside of the board
effectively acts as a large heatsink. The widths of the tracks carrying VIN and VOUT are kept wide. Vias are also distributed around the board to
aid thermal conduction and to ensure a consistent potential, particularly around the ground connections of the capacitors. All capacitors used are
located as close as possible to the AP22800 to minimize any parasitic effects.
The maximum junction temperature of the AP22800 is +125°C. To ensure that this is not exceeded, the following equation can be used to give an
approximation of junction temperature. Temperature readings taken with a thermal camera can also give a good approximation of power
dissipation with the use of this equation. The board layout has a major influence on the parameter
