Solid state power controllers are described that include a switch controlled by a microcontroller and communication contacts. In one aspect of the invention, the microcontroller is galvanically isolated from the communication contacts using magnetoresistive isolation. In another aspect of the invention a number of solid state power controllers are connected to an external microcontroller to form a power distribution array. In addition, messages exchanged between the external microcontroller and the solid state power controllers can be used to configure t...
What is claimed is: 1. A solid state power controller possessing a power connector, a load connector and at least one communication connector, comprising: a solid state switch electrically connectable between the power connector and the load connector, where the switch includes an input; circuitry for measuring a voltage at the power connector, the measuring circuitry configured to minimize a current drawn from the power connector by the measuring circuitry; a microcontroller coupled to the input of the solid state switch; and isolation circuitry connec...
