SLAS510G March 2007 – February 2021 TLV320AIC3104
The TLV320AIC3104 includes programmable short-circuit protection for the high-power output drivers, for maximum flexibility in a given application. By default, if these output drivers are shorted, they automatically limit the maximum amount of current that can be sourced to or sunk from a load, thereby protecting the device from an overcurrent condition. In this mode, the user can read page 0, register 95 to determine whether the part is in short-circuit protection or not, and then decide whether to program the device to power down the output drivers. However, the device includes further capability to power down an output driver automatically whenever it goes into short-circuit protection, without requiring intervention from the user. In this case, the output driver stays in a power-down condition until the user specifically programs it to power down and then power back up again, to clear the short-circuit flag.
