UCC27524A-Q1: OUTx Rating

Part Number: UCC27524A-Q1


We got a question from customer about UCC27524A-Q1.
Could you help us?

They would like to make sure the OUTx Rating.

- When VDD=12V, how much is the OUTx rating? Is it 12.3V?
- When VDD=Open, how much is the OUTx rating?
- What does the OUTx rating which is VDD+0.3V be related to? We think it is related to body diode of internal FET.

Best Regards,

  • Hello Tateo,
    Thank you for supporting the UCC27524A-Q1 with your customer. I am an application engineer with TI and will work to answer your questions.
    When VDD=12V, the OUTx abs max rating is 12.3V. The OUTx rating is based on the internal driver FET body diode as you mention.
    The second question is a little more difficult to answer. When VDD=Open does the customer mean there is no VDD capacitance and no voltage applied? (Open circuit).
    Also the state of the input signals is a consideration. When the OUTx is specified as VDD+0.3V the expectation is the output state is high, with high input signals. If VDD is open, the driver cannot respond to high inputs at low voltage levels.
  • Hi, Thank you for your reply. I would like to explain more clearly about second question. Please refer to below figure. How much is the VDS maximum rating of these MOSFET?

    Best Regards,

  • Hello Tateo,
    The VDS maximum rating of the output driver MOSFET's is 20.3V, as stated in the Absolute Maximum Ratings of VDD 20V (Maximum) +0.3V.
    I hope this answers your questions,
