Part Number: TPS92512HV
Posting this question for my customer as it may be beneficial to others that have a similar question.
Thanks for the help!
"We understand the TPS92512HV driver has a temperature shut off mechanism that works autonomously and independently from whatever we are doing with the control signals (PWM or Iadjust), they are asking me how to disable/defeat this behavior such that they can see how the device fails if that shut off mechanism was to malfunction.
I am at a loss on this one. Is this something you guys have dealt with in the past? How would you address such request?"
That function is inherent to the IC and couldn't be disabled without a silicon change. I'm not sure if that is a common failure mechanism though. I have tested hundreds of ICs of various types and have never seen the thermal shutdown fail on any of them if that helps.
