# TPS563209: Current Limit under VIN=5V, VOUT=1.2V, L1 = 2.2 µH

Part Number: TPS563209

Hi,

My customer wants to know the current limit value (Min/Typ/Max) under VIN=5V, VOUT = 1.2V , L1 = 2.2 µH.  According to the datasheet P.5, we can find the following under VIN=12V, VOUT=1.05V.  But there is no Vin=5V, Vout=1.2V data.

So could you please let us know how to calculate Current limit value on his condition?

Thanks and best regards,
M.HATTORI.

• Hi M.HATTORI,

The OCL spec. in datasheet is actually the valley value, so the typical output current limit value can be calculated with: I_limit=4.2+Ip-p/2

In this case, VIN=5V, VOUT = 1.2V , L1 = 2.2 µH, then Ip_p/2=0.13A, so I_limit= 4.33A.

You can also use this method to calculate Min/Max value.

Regards.

• Jared-san,

In general, when current limit is detected on Valley Value timing by comparator, current limit is constant and independent of L. On the other hands, Icol is depend of L on the datasheet P.5.

• Hi M.HATTORI.

Your understanding are right, the valley value of current limit is constant, independent of L.

For TPS563209, the valley current limit is constant: I_limit_valley=4.2 A. In datasheet Page.5, the L and output voltage information are actually useless or should not be there.

And due to the output current is the average of inductor current, so the output current limit: I_limit_ouput= I_limit_valley + Ip-p/2;

where, Ip-p/2=
