Recommended Connections for Unused Pins

The TPS27SA08-Q1 device is designed to provide an enhanced set of diagnostic and protection features. However, if the system design only allows for a limited number of I/O connections, some pins may be considered as optional.

Table 6-2 Connections for Optional Pins
PIN NAMECONNECTION IF NOT USEDIMPACT IF NOT USED
SNSGround through 1-kΩ resistorAnalog sense is not available.
LATCHFloat or ground through RPROT resistorWith LATCH unused, the device will auto-retry after a fault. If latched behavior is desired it is possible to use one microcontroller output to control the latch function of several high-side channels.
STFloatAll faults are indicated by the analog SNS pin. The ST pin provides the additional benefits:
  • Provide fault indication when DIA_EN = 0
  • Provide fault indication regardless of SELx pin conditions
  • Provide fault indication to a simple digital I/O (rather than ADC or comparator used with the SNS signal)
SEL1Float or ground through RPROT resistorSEL1 selects between the VBB and TJ sensing features. With SEL1 unused, only load diagnostics are available.
SEL2Ground through RPROT resistorWith SEL2 = 0 V, VBB measurement diagnostics are not available.
DIA_ENFloat or ground through RPROT resistorWith DIA_EN unused, analog sense, open-load and short-to-supply diagnostics are not available.

RPROT is used to protect the pins from excess current flow during reverse supply conditions, for more information please see the section on Reverse Supply protection.
