RESET Function

While the reset function of the LM53600-Q1 and LM53601-Q1 devices resembles a standard power good function, its functionality is designed to replace a discrete reset IC, reducing BOM cost. There are three major differences between the reset function and the normal power good function seen in most regulators:

  • A delay has been added for release of reset. See waveforms below.
  • RESET output signals a fault (pulls its output to ground) while the part is disabled.
  • RESET continues to operate with input voltage as low as 1.5 V. Below this input voltage, RESET output may be high impedance.

The following table summarizes conditions that cause a fault to be flagged by RESET . Once a fault is flagged, RESET will not be released (become high impedance) until either there is no fault for treset_act or VIN drops below Vreset_valid.

Table showing conditions that cause RESET to signal a fault (pull low).

FB below Vreset_UV for longer than treset_filtFB above Vreset_UV + Vreset_hyst for longer than treset_filt
FB above Vreset_OV for longer than treset_filtFB below Vreset_OV - Vreset_hyst for longer than treset_filt
Junction temperature exceeds TSDJunction temperature falls below TSD – TSD_hyst
EN lowtEN passes after EN becomes high(1)
VIN falls below Vin_UVLO - Vin_UVLO _hyst or VCC pin falls below Vcc_UVLO - Vcc_UVLO_hystVoltage on VIN exceeds Vin_UVLO and VCC exceed Vcc_UVLO
As an additional safety feature, RESET remains low until approximately 1ms after soft start ends even if all other conditions in this table are met and treset_act has passed. Lockout during soft start does not require treset_act to pass before RESET is released.

The threshold voltage for the RESET function is specified taking advantage of the availability of the LM53600-Q1 internal feedback threshold to the RESET circuit. This allows a maximum threshold of 97% of selected output voltage to be specified at the same time as 95.7% of actual operating point. The net result is a more accurate reset function while expanding the system allowance for transient response without the need for extremely accurate internal circuitry. See output voltage error stack up comparison, below.
