BTS7246 PDF – Smart High-Side Power Switch, BTS724G

A Smart High-Side Power Switch, often referred to simply as a “high-side switch” or “high-side power switch,” is an electronic component or module used in various applications to control the supply of electrical power to a load, device, or circuit. These switches are commonly used to manage the on/off state of loads in a smart or automated manner and often include additional features for protection, monitoring, and control.
