TPS2596: Inrush current, hard short or fast short definition

Part Number: TPS2596
Other Parts Discussed in Thread: TPS25947,

Hi team,

My customer is trying to select an E-fuse which could support a nominal current of 500mA however should support an inrush current of up to 1.5A (for max 470us ). Vin is 3V3 and auto retry is needed.


  1. is TPS2596x1 suitable? or suggest other device
  2. in the DS, hard short and fast short is mentioned, what is the level?

Best regards,
