Overcurrent Flag

The OPA593 features an overcurrent flag to indicate a condition where the output current draw attempts to exceed the limit configured through the ILIMIT pin, such as in a output short to ground fault condition. In such a situation, the internal current limit of the amplifier limits the output current to the configured value and the flag trips. This flag is an open-drain output designed to connect to standard low-voltage logic circuitry, such as a microcontroller (MCU).
