Maxim Integrated Products has developed the MAX14529E/MAX14530E overvoltage protectors (OVPs) with USB charger detection.

The devices employ an integrated MOSFET to protect low-voltage systems against voltage faults up to 28V, thus eliminating the need for an external nFET. Additionally, the MAX14529E/MAX14530E provide high-current USB charger detection and robust, 15kV ESD protection (Human Body Model)all in a 3mm x 3mm package. Offering the industry's smallest solution footprint, these OVPs are suitable for cellphones, media players, PDAs and other space-constrained applications.

The MAX14529E/MAX14530E are available in a tiny, 1.5mm x 2mm, 12-bump WLP, and are fully specified over the -40C to +85C extended temperature range. Prices start at $1.40 (1,000-up, FOB USA).
