Part Number: LM74610-Q1
I am seeing a negative voltage at Cathode of LM74610-Q1 in reverse battery condition. Specifically, Anode is at -13.5V.
The negative voltage is at -0.45V caused by the reverse leakage current (ILKG) from Cathode to Anode of typically 60uA. This is all right for LM74610-Q1, but is a serious problem for LM43602-Q1, which is in the downstream. The negative voltage is out of the rating of LM43602-Q1 at -0.3V.
Do you have any good idea to avoid this situation?
60uA is right out of the DS ES table. High spec at -13.5v is 110uA. That is just what the device does, 60uA is a fairly low value. Customer input impedance (~7.5k ohm) needs to be lowered or clamped to reduce the -0.45v to an acceptable level. Either a 2.5k-4k load resistor (depending on consistencey of customer input Z) or a Schottky cathode Vout anode gnd to reduce voltage impact.
We are glad that we were able to resolve this issue, and will now proceed to close this thread.
