TIDC-WL1837MODCOM8I: Power sequence

Part Number: TIDC-WL1837MODCOM8I

if the power is suddenly removed while the EN is high, what is the consequence?  is this just to prevent power from being applied to an I/O pin while the device is powered off?  will this damage the IC?  if someone consistently removes power and EN is high, will this reduce the devices life or lead to any premature failures? 

  • Hi there,

    If the enable line enabled before the power is removed they you are violating our power up / power down conditions of the IC and this can damage the IC. You need to ensure that the conditions are met per our datasheet.

    Please refer to page 21 for the conditions in the datasheet here:
