I want to use the LTC4381 as an eFuse (due to part shortage...) and I wonder if someone at ADI could confirm that I can use it safely the way I plan to.
The voltage I want to protect is 5V (permanent) , so I need to power the IC to a higher voltage (that's what I understand from the spec).
So I want to connect Vcc independently like this drawing:
Is it a valid connection?
Thanks for confirming.
