SNVSB28 December 2017 LM25575-Q1
The LM25575-Q1 contains a dual level Shutdown (SD) circuit. When the SD pin voltage is below 0.7 V, the regulator is in a low current shutdown mode. When the SD pin voltage is greater than 0.7 V but less than 1.225 V, the regulator is in standby mode. In standby mode the VCC regulator is active but the output switch is disabled. When the SD pin voltage exceeds 1.225 V, the output switch is enabled and normal operation begins. An internal 5 µA pull-up current source configures the regulator to be fully operational if the SD pin is left open.
An external set-point voltage divider from VIN to GND can be used to set the operational input range of the regulator. The divider must be designed such that the voltage at the SD pin will be greater than 1.225 V when VIN is in the desired operating range. The internal 5 µA pull-up current source must be included in calculations of the external set-point divider. Hysteresis of 0.1 V is included for both the shutdown and standby thresholds. The SD pin is internally clamped with a 1 kΩ resistor and an 8 V zener clamp. The voltage at the SD pin should never exceed 14 V. If the voltage at the SD pin exceeds 8 V, the bias current will increase at a rate of 1 mA/V.
The SD pin can also be used to implement various remote enable and disable functions. Pulling the SD pin below the 0.7 V threshold totally disables the controller. If the SD pin voltage is above 1.225 V the regulator will be operational.
