System UVLO by EN and VCC_UVLO voltage on the EN pin (VEN) controls the ON/OFF functionality of the LM76002-Q1/LM76003-Q1. Applying a voltage less than 0.3 V to the EN input shuts down the operation of the LM76002-Q1/LM76003-Q1. In shutdown mode the quiescent current drops to typically 1.2 µA at VIN = 24 V.
The internal LDO output voltage VCC is turned on when VEN_VOUT_H is higher than 1.15 V. The LM76002-Q1/LM76003-Q1 switching action and output regulation are enabled when VEN is greater than 1.204 V (typical). The LM76002-Q1/LM76003-Q1 supplies regulated output voltage when enabled and output current up to 2.5 A/3.5 A. The EN pin is an input and cannot be open circuit or floating. The simplest way to enable the operation of the LM76002-Q1/LM76003-Q1 is to connect the EN pin to PVIN pins directly. This allows self-start-up of the LM76002-Q1/LM76003-Q1 when VIN is within the operation range.
Many applications may benefit from the employment of an enable divider RENT and RENB (see Figure 12) to establish a precision system UVLO level for the stage. System UVLO can be used for supplies operating from utility power as well as battery power. It can be used for sequencing, ensuring reliable operation, or supply protection, such as a battery. An external logic signal can also be used to drive EN input for system sequencing and protection.
With a selected RENT, the RENB can be calculated by:
Note that the divider adds to supply quiescent current by VIN / (RENT + RENB). Small RENT and RENB values add more quiescent current loss. However, large divider values make the node more sensitive to noise. RENT in the hundreds of kΩ range is a good starting point.
