#### 8.2.1.2.2 Power Dissipation and Output Current Capability

The output current and power dissipation capabilities of the device are heavily dependent on the PCB design and external system conditions. This section provides some guidelines for calculating these values.

Total power dissipation for the device is composed of three main components. These are the quiescent supply current dissipation, the power MOSFET switching losses. and the power MOSFET RDS(on) (conduction) losses. While other factors may contribute additional power losses, these other items are typically insignificant compared to the three main items.

Equation 8. PTOT = PVM + PSW + PRDS

PVM can be calculated from the nominal supply voltage (VM) and the IVM active mode current specification.

Equation 9. PVM = VM x IVM
Equation 10. PVM = 0.096 W = 24 V x 4 mA

PSW can be calculated from the nominal supply voltage (VM), average output current (IRMS), switching frequency (fPWM) and the device output rise (tRISE) and fall (tFALL) time specifications.

Equation 11. PSW = PSW_RISE + PSW_FALL
Equation 12. PSW_RISE = 0.5 x VM x IRMS x tRISE x fPWM
Equation 13. PSW_FALL =0.5 x VM x IRMS x tFALL x fPWM
Equation 14. PSW_RISE = 0.018 W = 0.5 x 24 V x 0.5 A x 150 ns x 20 kHz
Equation 15. PSW_FALL = 0.018 W = 0.5 x 24 V x 0.5 A x 150 ns x 20 kHz
Equation 16. PSW = 0.036 W = 0.018 W + 0.018 W

PRDS can be calculated from the device RDS(on) and average output current (IRMS)

Equation 17. PRDS = IRMS2 x (RDS(ON)_HS + RDS(ON)_LS)

It should be noted that RDS(ON) has a strong correlation with the device temperature. A curve showing the normalized RDS(on) with temperature can be found in the Typical Characteristics curves. Assuming a device temperature of 85 °C it can be expected that RDS(on) will see an increases of ~1.25 based on the normalized temperature data.

Equation 18. PRDS = 0.219 W = (0.5 A)2 x (350 mΩ x 1.25 + 350 mΩ x 1.25)

By adding together the different power dissipation components it can be verified that the expected power dissipation and device junction temperature is within design targets.

Equation 19. PTOT = PVM + PSW + PRDS
Equation 20. PTOT= 0.351 W = 0.096 W + 0.036 W + 0.219 W

The device junction temperature can be calculated with the PTOT, device ambient temperature (TA), and package thermal resistance (RθJA). The value for RθJA is heavily dependent on the PCB design and copper heat sinking around the device.

Equation 21. TJ = (PTOT x RθJA) + TA
Equation 22. TJ = 97°C = (0.351 W x 35 °C/W) + 85°C

It should be ensured that the device junction temperature is within the specified operating region. Other methods exist for verifying the device junction temperature depending on the measurements available.
