SLVSE17A May 2019 – April 2020 TPS1HB16-Q1
Version B of the TPS1HB16-Q1 implements a current limit foldback feature that is designed to protect the device in the case of a long-term fault condition. If the device undergoes fault shutdown events (either of thermal shutdown or current limit) seven consecutive times, the current limit will be reduced to half of the original value. The device will revert back to the original current limit threshold if either of the following occurs:
Version A does not implement the current limit foldback due to the lower current limit causing less harm during repetitive long-term faults.
