Trying to find a datasheet for it. Best I can make out from markings is:


VM1AP5 1

K240 1

Could also be 3211SO? Not very legible.

Pins 5,6,7,8 are all shorted together if that helps.

If you can help me identify this chip it would be much appreciated.Unknown chip

    \$\begingroup\$ What's the context of the circuit surrounding this? Four pins shorted together could suggest a power FET in that package, but this is just a hunch. \$\endgroup\$

  • \$\begingroup\$ @Codebeat I found that in my searches. What I don't understand is why pins 5-8 are shorted together. That shorts V+ and GND pins together. \$\endgroup\$ Dec 21, 2021 at 19:59
