SNVSBZ3 June 2021 LM5168-Q1
The LM516x-Q1 includes an internal junction temperature monitor to protect the device in the event of a higher than normal junction temperature. If the junction temperature exceeds 175°C (typical), thermal shutdown occurs to prevent further power dissipation and temperature rise. The LM516x-Q1 initiates a restart sequence when the junction temperature falls to 165°C, based on a typical thermal shutdown hysteresis of 10°C. This is a non-latching protection, so the device cycles into and out of thermal shutdown if the fault persists.
