Part Number: TPS61099
The input to the TPS61099 is a 1.4V coin cell battery. I'm considering adding a pfet at the input for reverse voltage protection but is this even necessary
since the TPS61099 device has UVLO?
Do you concern about customer connect the battery upside down?
It's recommend to avoid this risk from mechanical, not only protect the circuit, also guide the end customer the right way.
If it's need, you could add an idea diode between battery and Vin. Yes, a PFET could help do that.
But I afraid the UVLO can't protect the battery, as there is a diode integrated the IC from GND to Vin. It allow the native current, and may damage the IC and battery.
We are glad that we were able to resolve this issue, and will now proceed to close this thread.
