Other Parts Discussed in Thread: LM5101A
The datasheet doesn't include the curr rating of the internal bootstrap diode, what is it, such as peak current (better with duration specified). I am using it on a mass production platform, and not plan to parallel an external diode, assuming there is no resistor in series with the diode inside the chip. In the existing PCB design I don't have a resistor in series with the bootstrap cap (1uf) either, which means the peak curr through diode could be as high as 12V/1ohm =12A (1ohm is the diode resistance listed in datasheet). TY.
