I am trying to use the LM2841 to provide a 5V output from 24V input. I have therefore used the application circuit shown in Figure 15 on page 10 of the datasheet for the LM2841.
Testing under no load, on first power up the device and the circuit are fine providing the 5V output as required. But after a few power cycles the output goes to 24V (i.e. matches the input voltage) as if the device is short circuited. As we have copied the application circuit we are not sure what is the cause of this. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated!
