SNVSBK9C November 2019 – September 2020 LM63635-Q1
Start-up and shutdown are controlled by the EN input. This input features precision thresholds, allowing the use of an external voltage divider to provide an adjustable input UVLO (see Section 18.104.22.168). Applying a voltage greater than VEN-VCC causes the device to enter standby mode, powering the internal VCC, but not producing an output voltage. Increasing the EN voltage to VEN-H fully enables the device, allowing it to enter start-up mode and begin the soft-start period. When the EN input is brought below VEN-L, the regulator stops running and enters standby mode. Further decrease in the EN voltage to below VEN-VCC completely shuts down the device. Figure 8-2 shows this behavior. The EN input can be connected directly to VIN if this feature is not needed. This input must not be allowed to float. The values for the various EN thresholds can be found in Section 7.
The LM63635-Q1 uses a reference-based soft start that prevents output voltage overshoots and large inrush currents as the regulator is starting up. Figure 8-3 shows a typical start-up waveform along with typical timings. Once EN goes high, there is a delay of about 1 ms before the soft-start period begins. The output voltage begins to rise and reaches the final value in about 1.5 ms (tss). After a delay of about 3 ms (trise-delay), the RESET flag goes high. During start-up, the device is not allowed to enter FPWM mode until the tss-done time has elapsed. This time is measured from the rising edge of EN.
