LM5160A: Minimum current load

Part Number: LM5160A


Following is described on the datasheet p.13;

"The minimum load current for continuous conduction mode is one-half the inductor’s ripple current amplitude."

Why is this restriction existed?

How is the device behavior if load current overs one-half the inductor's ripple current?

Best Regards,
