Automotive Load Dump Protection

Modern automotive designs use a mass of electronics, such as control units, infotainment systems and sensors, all being powered by the car battery and the alternator. A load dump transient is the voltage surge generated when the battery is disconnected while the alternator is connected. This typically happens if a discharged car battery is powered up by a second one and afterwards jump leads are removed.
