Turn On Time (tON) and Adjustable Slew Rate (CT)

A capacitor to VIN on the CT pin sets the slew rate of VOUT. The CT capacitor voltage will ramp until shortly after the switch is turned on and VOUT becomes stable.

Leaving the CT pin open will result in the highest slew rate and fastest turn on time. These values can be found in the Switching Characteristics Table. For slower slew rates the required CT capacitor can be found using Equation 1:

Equation 1. CT = (Slew Rate) ÷ SRON

where

  • Slew Rate = Desired slew rate (mV/us)
  • CT = The capacitance value on the CT pin (pF)
  • SRON = Slew Rate Constant from Table ((mV/µs) × pF)

The total turn on time has a direct correlation to the output slew rate. The fastest turn on times (tON), with CT pin open, can be found in the Switching Characteristics. For slower slew rates, the resulting turn on time can be found with Equation 2:

Equation 2. Turn On time = CT × tON

where

  • Turn On Time = Total Time from Enable until VOUT rises to 90% of VIN (µs)
  • CT = The capacitance value on the CT pin (pF)
  • tON = Turn On Time Constant (µs/pF)
