ECE480 Design Team 5
Overcurrent Protection Reference Design & Study

Project Overview

The purpose of this project is to design, test, and document multiple real-world OCP application circuits. Texas Instruments has sent us two different applications to design and implement OCP systems: a tablet-pc, as well as a consumer cellphone. For the tablet-pc application, we will monitor the supply current, and if an excess of current is drawn the power to the system is shutdown. In the cellphone application, we are to develop a system that will accurately monitor the load current of the cellphone.

Key Features

  • Utilizes a broad range of TI parts
  • Low power, high accuracy design
  • Compact implementation with minimal system impact
