Intelligent Power Switches (Toshiba calls them IntelliFET). A power
MosFET with drivers, protection and diagnostics. You put 5V/1mA on the
gate and it drives the load. If it overheats/shorts/load
missing/whatever goes bad it doesn't suffer a thing and pulls down
a diagnostic pin (in particular they're guaranteed to survive a short to
both power rails). Available in both source and sink version. Only
drawback they're somewhat slow (no hard PWM) and costs a little more...
the device I'm using is the IPS6021.

If you want some I could give you even some 'non-compromising'
schematic. The style is somewhat different since I'm using the ISO font
and a custom library (but is an example of library customization:P)
