Pulsed loading conditions and abnormal disturbances within the electrical systems found in industrial, vehicle, avionic and other harsh environments can induce wildly varying voltage transients (surges) on what is nominally a 24VDC or 36VDC distributed bus. The LTM4641 challenges this notion by protecting the load from seeing excessive voltage stress, even when its high side switching MOSFET is short-circuited.
