    Hi
    Can you give me a circuit-breaker name or datasheet that I can use in a PCB circuit, with 24VDC of minimum voltage rating and 5A of minimum current rating ?

    If you mean a step-down, then TPS5450 is one such chip.

    Ok, a switcher usually means a switch mode power supply. I know there exist circuit breakers that fit into holders for automotive fuses, I guess that is about as small as you can get.

    Yes I found one: http://www.e-t-a.com/fileadmin/user...1_pdf_thermisch/1_pdf_englisch/D_1620_ENG.pdf
    but I don't know if I can use it in a PCB or not, I am using Eagle for the schematic and layout I don't think I can found something like that in its library, also like you said it is for automotive fuses I am afraid that it doesn't work for a standard use.

    As usual, you would have to make your own footprint for that if you cant find one already made. What do you mean by a standard use? Automotive parts are more demanding in temperature, vibration, etc., so anything that is made for automotive will work without a problem on a normal pcb.
