The video highlights first what are protection in electronic devices, why protection is a must, then a description of what are the challenges for engineers in designing protection circuits and on the last part, what can be put in place to have a robust system protection with solutions including discrete components and modern ICs integrating advanced features for maximum protection and minimizing cost and PCB area. Suitable Maxim parts are mentioned to illustrate how easy protection can be put in place.
