SNVS723G October 2011 – July 2018 LMZ10500
The junction temperature of the LMZ10500 should not be allowed to exceed its maximum operating rating of 125°C. Thermal protection is implemented by an internal thermal shutdown circuit which activates at 150°C (typ). When this temperature is reached, the device enters a low power standby state. In this state switching remains off causing the output voltage to fall. Also, the VCON capacitor is discharged to SGND. When the junction temperature falls back below 130°C (typ) normal startup occurs and VOUT rises smoothly from 0 V. Applications requiring maximum output current may require derating at elevated ambient temperature. See Typical Characteristics for thermal derating plots for various output voltages.
