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 the External UVLO section). Applying a voltage of ≥ VEN-VCC_H 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-H by VEN-HYS, the regulator stops running and enters standby mode. Further decrease in the EN voltage to below VEN-VCC-L completely shuts down the device. Figure 9 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 the Electrical Characteristics table.
The uses a reference-based soft start that prevents output voltage overshoots and large inrush currents as the regulator is starting up. Figure 10 shows a typical start-up waveform, indicating typical timings. The rise time of the output voltage is about 4 ms (see the Electrical Characteristics section).
