Part Number: TPA6404-Q1
Here are two questions may need your kindly help.
Which DC diagnostic fault refers to in bit  in register 0x09, such as S2G, S2P, OL, SL?
1: 4 CHs are connected to 4ohm load respectively 2. Initialization data: 0x09=0x00; 0x2b=0x03, 0x04=0x00 3. Pull down the S2G and fault pin of one of them.
bit  has been set to 0, why is it pulled down?Could you please kindly indicate the meaning of bit ?
The internal PVDD and outp/n of the IC are output through push-pull, using MOS tube.
If this is the case, there is also a body diode inside the MOS tube, as shown in Figure D6 (marked in red), It is equivalent to a body diode and an external diode in parallel. Could you please indicate the function of adding this external diode?
you attached picture is for battery short to output reverse protection setup. for Bit definition, I will let Dylan follow up with you.
We are glad that we were able to resolve this issue, and will now proceed to close this thread.

Questions about register 0x09 bit 2.
This bit controls whether to report this fault(S2G/S2P/OL/SL) to fault pin. When set to 0, they should be not reported to fault pin.
Can you confirm your test steps:
1: 4 CHs are connected to 4ohm load respectively
S2G fault event should be added between step 1 and 2.2. Initialization data: 0x09=0x00; 0x2b=0x03, 0x04=0x003. Pull down the S2G and check fault pin
DC diagnositc is a one time diagnositc at startup. If device is already in play mode, then short event can;t be detected by DC diag, it will trigger a OC event, then the fault pin report OC event. You can read device fault register to find it.
Question about diode.
In normal condition, the internal diode can handle this current. while when the bulk capacitance is huge and DCR in this path is too low, then current level would be very large(some time could be >80A), which will damage device. at this situation, an external protection diode would be required.
