LTC4381 as an eFuse

Category: Hardware
Product Number: LTC4381


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.
