The chip temperature is constantly monitored to prevent overheating of the device. There are two levels of fault condition (register 0x0C). The first is to warn for overheating (TS_WARN). This is an indication that the chip temperature raises to a critical temperature. The next level of warning is TS_SHUT. This occurs at a higher temperature than TS_WARN and will shutdown the chip to prevent permanent damage. Both temperature faults have hysteresis on their levels to prevent rapid switching around the temperature threshold.
