BQ24296M: BQ24296M: Conncet external USB source in boost mode

Part Number: BQ24296M


I need to use BQ24296M in boost mode to power part of my device, but in this time user can connect external USB power source to input of the BQ24296M .

What will do BQ24296M in this case? It will automatically disble boost mode and switch to buck mode? May this become cause of damage for BQ24296M?

Thanks a lot!

  • Hi,

    For BQ24296M, VBUS and PMID are both boost mode output. VBUS cannot detect adaptor plug-in. As long as the adaptor applied is within the device operating range, the device should not get damaged. The host may disable boost mode when needed.
