The equation defining the PCUT is:
PCUT = (N × PCSTEP)
Where, when assuming 0.200-Ω Rsense resistor is used:
PCSTEP = 0.5 W
These bits set the minimum threshold for the design. Internally, the typical PCUT threshold is set slightly above this value to ensure that the device does not trip a Pcut fault at or below the set value in this register due to part to part or temperature variation.
For 4-pair wired, the 2P Policing values are still applied to the individual Channels. See the description for registers 0x1Eh through 0x21h for more information on 2-Pair Policing.
The contents of this register is reset to 0xFFh anytime the port is turned off or disabled either due to fault condition or user command
Programmed values of less than 4W are not supported. If a value of less than 4W is programmed into these registers, the device will use 4W as the 4-pair Policing value.
4-Pair Power Policing:
The TPS23881 implements a true Power Policing limit, where the device will adjust the policing limit based on both voltage and sum of current variation in order to ensure a reliable power limit.
In Semi Auto and Auto modes, these bits are automatically set during power on based on the assigned class (see Table 47). If an alternative value is desired, it needs to be set after the PEn bit is set in register 0x10h, or it may also be configured prior to port turn on in combination with the use of the MPOLn bits in register 0x40 (see 2x FOLDBACK SELECTION Register).
|Assigned Class||POLnn7-0 Settings||Minimum Power|
|Class 1||0000 1000||4W|
|Class 2||0000 1110||7W|
|Class 3||0001 1111||15.5W|
|Class 4||0011 1100||30W|
|Class 5||0101 1010||45W|
|Class 6||0111 1000||60W|
|Class 7||1001 0110||75W|
|Class 8||1011 0100||90W|
For a 4-pair dual signature devices, these values will be set based on the sum of the assigned classes of both channels, but 4P PCut will be disabled (4PPCTnn bit in 0x2D = 0) by default as the primary policing method for dual signature devices will be the 2-Pair values defined in registers 0x1Eh - 0x21h.
Setting the 4PPCTnn bit in 0x2D will enable 4P Policing if desired.
The tOVLD time for 4-pair Pcut faults will be equal to the tOVLD setting + approximately 6 ms
