TPS7A94: PG operation at 0.4V output

Part Number: TPS7A94

Hi

According to the datasheet for proper PG operation, the Vout must be above 1.2V.

I  use this LDO for 0.4V output. and PG operation is a must-have in my design.

How will the current limiting and PG  operate in this case and what are the values of the FB_PG resistor recommended?

Regards

Alex

  • Hi Alex, 

    I am reaching out to our design team to get this information. I realize that the preliminary datasheet does not clearly indicate why Vout must be above 1.2V for PG to function properly. Please allow 1-2 business days to get back to you.

  • Hi Alex,

    I am communicating with design about this still. Please allow an additional 1-2 business days. I apologize for the delay.

  • Hi Alex,

    PG should still work down to VOUT = 0.4V because the PG trip mechanism is a simple comparator that compares the voltage at FB_PG to an internal reference. It is the current limit setting that will not work reliably with VOUT < 1.2V and in this case the only option is 100% default current limit.
