Infineon 12 V Protected Switch Shield for Arduino with BTS50010-1TAD
The 12V protected switch shield for Arduino comes with BTS50010-1TAD (RDS(ON) 1.0mΩ) is the lowest ohmic smart high-side power switch available in the market.
Designed for relay and fuse replacement in power distribution and junction boxes, Power PROFET™ can drive resistive, inductive and capacitive loads. The Power PROFET™ family targets high current applications (e.g. ECU power feeds, auxiliary power outlets, PTC heaters, rear windows heaters) and applications with high switching cycles and high energy requirements (e.g. "start-stop" systems, electric brake vacuum pumps).
The shield can be used in stand-alone mode or controlled either by an Arduino board or the ARM® powered Infineon XMC™ microcontroller kits using the Arduino form factor. In this video the shield is used with the XMC™ kit and DAVE –Infineon’s code generator- to drive glow plugs.
