TPS61222: DCDC with the latch protection at short circuit

Part Number: TPS61222
Other Parts Discussed in Thread: TPS54J060, TPS22951

Hi, Team,

Now my customer is searching buck DCDC part with the latch protection at overcurrent(Vo shorted to GND).

The spec requested of IC is;

VIN range= max 6V,  Programmable VO= 2.4 ~ 3.3V , Iomax=50mA

Do you have any recommended part?



  • Hi Semeno:

    I think you choose a wrong part. I will transfer this post to right team.

  • Hi Hidekazu,

    It seems there is no low voltage buck converter that has a latch over current protection.

    Is peak current limit protection enough for your application?

    Best regards,


  • Thanks for your reply.

    No,  Customer is searching for the low power DCDC that has the latch-off operation when the short circuit on VOUT happened.

    Is there any good external circuit application to add the function like that?



  • Hi Hidekazu,

    It's difficult to add an external circuit to support latch-off function at short circuit condition because it needs to monitor to signals simultaneously (Vout and Iout) to avoid any false triggering. 

    There are a mid-Vin buck converter with latch-off current limit protection (ex. TPS54J060, 6-A) which you can consider. Another possible option is to add a load switch after the low voltage buck converter which will serve as a current limit protection. You can check TPS22951 (see the description below) if it fits the customer application.

    Best regards,
