I am wondering if it is possible to use two MP5016 e-fuses in parallel to lower the power dissipation.
We need them in an application that can have relative high ambient temperatures (85C) and with a continuous load of 4A the junction will be just on the edge of the thermal limit, so I’m not comfortable with that.
But adding a second in parallel (both set to one half of the allowed current) would lower the total power dissipated in the internal mosfet. Is this possible? I can imagine that the slew rate control could mess up normal operation.
