The guideline for the SENSE resistor chosen doesn't change in parallel mode. As the goal of this configuration is to evenly distribute the current load across multiple devices, each device should be configured with the same ITRIP setting. Therefore, the same SENSE resistor should be used for all devices connected in parallel.
Connection of the SENSE resistors should be as shown in Figure 8-10.
