RESET Output Operation

While the RESET function of the LM6x4xx-Q1 resembles a standard power-good function, the 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 Table 8-1.
  • 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 1.2 V. Below this input voltage, RESET output can be high impedance.

Table 8-1 Conditions that Cause RESET to Signal a Fault (Pull Low)
FB below VRESET_UV for longer than tRESET_FILTERFB above VRESET_UV + VRESET_HYST for longer than tRESET_FILTER
FB above VRESET_OV for longer than tRESET_FILTERFB below VRESET_OV - VRESET_HYST for longer than tRESET_FILTER
Junction temperature exceeds TSD_RJunction temperature falls below TSD_F(1)
EN lowtEN passes after EN becomes high(1)
VIN falls low enough so that VCC falls below VCC_UVLO - VCC_UVLO_HYST. This value is called VIN_OPERATE.Voltage on VIN is high enough so that VCC pin exceed VCC_UVLO(1)
As an additional operational check, RESET remains low during soft start. It is defined as until the lesser of either full output voltage reached or tSS2 has passed since initiation. This is true 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 to take advantage of the availability of the LM6x4xx-Q1 internal feedback threshold to the RESET circuit. This allows a maximum threshold of 96.5% of selected output voltage to be specified at the same time as 96% of actual operating point. The net result is a more accurate reset function while expanding the system allowance for transient response. See the output voltage error stack-up comparison in Figure 8-9.

In addition to signaling a fault upon overvoltage detection (FB above VRESET_OV), the switch node is shut down and a small, approximately 1-mA pulldown is applied to the SW node.
