Other Parts Discussed in Thread: TLV62084
I'm facing some issues when designing a board using these DC/DC converters. Both of the issues are related to the PG signal:
- When using the PG signal the datasheet says: "The power good output requires a pull-up resistor which is recommended connecting to the device output." [page 10]
Does this mean I can't never connect the PG pull-up to the input voltage? Since I'm using more than one device of this P/N, and the EN signal has a threshold value of 1V, I wouldn't like to connect the PG pull-up resistor to a 0.9V output of another of the converters, because it would not Enable the next converter.
If I could connect the pull-up resistor to the 5V input, it would be much more easier to achieve the power-up sequence I need.
- In page 11, of the datasheet there is Table 3, which has two different conditions for EN=HIGH signals: VFB >= VPG or VFB <=VPG . So, the problem is I don't really understand when VFB will be greater than VPG, or even what voltage is VPG...
VFB is stated to be 0.45V. VPG, to me, should be the voltage on the PG pin which will be set by the pull-up resistor. But, as the converter's output range goes from 0.5V to 4V and the datasheet recommends to connect PG to the output... VPG will ALWAYS be greater than VFB.
So, either is something wrong in the datasheet or either I'm wrong understand it.
I'll kindly ask for someone to shed some light on this issues.
