Other Parts Discussed in Thread: TPS61200
Can anybody explain the purpose of resistor R1 on the EVM module ? This resistor is only shown on the Rev E datasheet as part of the reverse battery protection circuit.
Reason I ask is that we have designed this part into a battery powered handheld application, and we're finding that in about half of the pre-production units the TPS61200 fails to start and gets warm very quickly.
