Q: TPS63020 Pgood sink current capability question? by 1023006
Could you let me know Pgood sink current capability of TPS63020? I saw datasheet and switch pro, they use 1M ohm for Pgood pull higih resistor to 3.3V output terminal. Is mean the Pgood sink current capability is very low?

The test condition in the specification section is 10uA. At that current voltage at the pin will be typically 0.04V and a max of 0.4V over temp. As current is increased the voltage will increase. How much current the pin can sink will depend on the circuit using the PG pin and how low a voltage at the PG pin is required for a valid low.

Pgood (PG) pin current sink capability is low. But this is a signal line only and a large amount of current sink should not be required.

Thanks for your comment, it is very clear.
The PG signal is an open drain signal and Rdson of the MOSFET will range between 0.04V/10uA=4kohm and 0.4V/10uA=40kohm. The combination of Rdson and sink current determines the voltage at the pin. Value of the pull up resistor will determine the sink current.
The specification for Pgood (PG) pin are located in the Control Stage of page three, PG output low voltage. Test condition—Vout = 3.3V , Ipgl = 10uA. Specifications 0.04V typical and 0.4V Max.
