TPS3805 internal logic operation and meaning
I have a question on TPS3805.
There is a symbol as enclosed in circle in the image above that I don't understand. What does this wavy symbol(highlighted) represent?
I also have a question on amplifier. The lower right part of the image was the part of the schematic of a TI partner's EVM (EVMAM1808 schematics). When VCC_1V8_LDO_OUT is at 1.8V, the fraction voltage input into SENSE is 1.48V as calculated in the image. This 1.48V is higher than the 1.226V reference voltage, and since 1.226V reference image is connected to "+" end and 1.48V is connected to "-" end, the arithmetic sum is negative.
I have little knowledge with differential amplifier. What is the behavior of a differential amplifier when input arithmetic sum is negative? What would the output be?
Since its output is fed into the OR gate, this output voltage must be non-negative since OR gate is not designed to accept negative voltages. So does the wavy symbol within the differential amplifier mean "absolute value"?
Could anyone help on these questions?
That symbol denotes hysteresis. Those amplifiers are in fact simple comparators. They output a logic high or low depending on which input terminal is greater. The hysteresis symbol in them says that there is some hysteresis on their output state.
When sense is less than 1.226V, the output of that comparator goes high, since the + terminal has a higher voltage on it than the - terminal. This high signal is all that is required to make the inverting OR gate output go low. This is when the IC is in reset--when the sense input is too low.
I got it, thanks.
