TS3A4751: switch not working properly when a pull dwon resistor 20K is added in the IN signal.
Part Number: TS3A4751
we are using TS3A4751RUCR in one of our designs.
The "In1 to In4" inputs are connected together and pulled down with 20K resistor and controlled by a GPIO of uC. we observe an issue when the Controller tries to enable (pulling the IN inputs to 1.8v) and the switch is not functioning as intended. The schematics is attached herewith or your reference. The drive strength of microcontroller is 2mA to 12mA.
1. what is the input capacitance / load capacitance of "In" inputs?. we couldn't find the details in the datasheet.
2. can the In1 to In4 be connected together and if connected together what is the drive current required by the "driver" (microcontroller)?
3. Do we need to improve anything on the attached schematics?
Would you please reattach your schematic it didn't come through?
What is the intended function vs what you are observing? Do you have any scope capture of the IN, COM, NO, and Supply Pins?
How many boards are you seeing this behavior out of how many built? Does replacing the device solve the issue?
The leakage current spec on the in pin shows that placing a voltage up to Vcc will only have 20nA current leak into the node so you know that your driver is strong enough to toggle this device.
We are glad that we were able to resolve this issue, and will now proceed to close this thread.

In reply to Adam Torma:
thanks for the response. i have reattached the switch schematics in pdf format. Switch_Schematics.pdf
we are using this switch to isolate the power rails of two sections of the design. we have a ARM based controller and FPGA in the design. As per the requirements, the ARM controller powers up first and later powers on the FPGA circuits.The power rails for the FPGA circuit goes through the switch. The switch enable inputs "IN1 to 4" are controlled by the ARM controller. once the ARM powers up and booted, it turns on the switch by "driving 1" and FPGA circuit gets the power.
We have manufactured around 18 boards (two different revisions with circuits) and all the boards exhibited the same behavior. replacement didn't solve the issue.
I do not have the waveforms currently. We will take it and share it across in a day..
In reply to Sivakumar Subramanian90:
Thank you for re sending the schematic. I didn't see any obvious issues upon first inspection.
Thank you for explaining the intended operation of the circuit.
What is the issue? What is happening that is not expected?
With supply voltage at 3.3 V the Vih min is 1.4 V. Placing a voltage > 1.4V on the IN pin should create a low impedance path between COM and NO to deliver the power to your circuit.
