Part Number: TPS61041
We got a question from the customer about TPS61041.Could you help us?
[Question]According to the datasheet, the rush current of the inductor current is occurred at start-up.
- They assume the finish of the soft start period is the reason why this phenomenon happens. Is this their understanding correct?- Is there any solutions to prevent the rush current?
They are using the IC on thier proto type. They have problem which is the source current of the battery beyonds the rating due to this rush current. Therefore they would like to know how to reduce the rush current.

In reply to Jasper Li:
Hi, Thank you for your support. Let me confirm one thing. They assume Cff might reduce the rush current since it vary loop response. Therefore they would like to try to vary Cff. How much is the recommended range of Cff under the following their schematic?
Hi, Are there any update on that? Sorry for rush, but could you give us your feedback by this Tuesday?
In reply to tateo yamashiro:
Hi, Thank you for your reply. I need to clear my head. We assume this phenomenon is occurred by following steps.
1. IC is enabled 2. Start the soft-start (starting from ILIM/4 for 256 cycles, then ILIM/2 for the next 256 cycles) 3. Delay time to enter the full current limit (this causes the rush current) 4. finish the soft-start period (release full current limit)
The soft-start period is determined by clock cycle(256 + 256 cycles). Therefore we assume the IC can't extend the start-up period. And the rush current seems to beyond full current limit. We assume the delay time to enter the full current limit causes the unregulated the current limit. Is this our understanding correct?
If our understanding is correct, we need to shorten the delay time. Are there any solutions for that?
Hi Tateo, the inrush current is 250mA, which is still below the peak current limit of this device, 400mA. that is also why I suggest 250mA device TPS61041. The current limit is the same for the period 3 and 4. the input current is determined by the loading in the period 4. it doesn't reach the current limit.
Hi, Thank you for your reply. The topology of this IC is peak current limit control. Please refer to section 7.3.1 in datasheet. So I believe the inductor current reaches the full current limit in the period 4.
I think the range of Il is a typo...
Hi, I think the input current is same as the inductor current. Please refer to attached file for the details.
