Adjustable Peak Current Limit

To avoid an accidental large peak current, an internal cycle-by-cycle current limit is adopted. The low-side switch is turned off immediately as soon as the switch current touches the limit. The peak switch current limit can be set by a resistor at the ILIM pin to ground. The relationship between the current limit and the resistance depends on the status of the MODE pin.

When the MODE pin is floating, namely the TPS61088 is set to work in the PFM mode at light load, use Equation 3 to calculate the resistor value:

Equation 3. TPS61088 eq_I_lim_1_lvscm8.gif

where

  • RILIM is the resistance between the ILIM pin and ground.
  • ILIM is the switch peak current limit.

When the resistor value is 100 kΩ, the typical current limit is 11.9 A.

When the MODE pin is connected to ground, namely the TPS61088 is set to work in the forced PWM mode at light load, use Equation 4 to calculate the resistor value.

Equation 4. TPS61088 eq_I_lim_2_lvscm8.gif

When the resistor value is 100 kΩ. the typical current limit is 10.3 A.

Considering the device variation and the tolerance over temperature, the minimum current limit at the worst case can be 1.3 A lower than the value calculated by above equations.
