LM63615-Q1: inductor selection

Part Number: LM63615-Q1


can you please clarify the Ioutmax definition in the section below of the product datasheet? Inductor Selection

"Use the maximum device current when calculating the ripple current for applications with much smaller maximum load than the maximum available from the device"

>> max device current ? is it Iout average coming out of the buck in the application heaviest load condition ? or the top ripple inductor current in the application heaviest load condition?

>> Much smaller ? how much smaller?
