Setting Peak Current Limit

The peak input current is set by selecting the correct external resistor value correlating to the required current limit. Because the TPS61088 is configured to work in the PFM mode in light load condition, use Equation 6 to calculate the correct resistor value:

Equation 6. TPS61088 eq_I_lim_1_lvscm8.gif

where

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

For a typical current limit of 11.9 A, the resistor value is 100 kΩ. 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 Equation 6. The minimum current limit must be higher than the required peak switch current at the lowest input voltage and the highest output power to make sure the TPS61088 does not hit the current limit and still can regulate the output voltage in these conditions.
