The purpose of the discharge function is to ensure a defined down-ramp of the output voltage when the device is being disabled but also to keep the output voltage close to 0 V when the device is off. The output discharge feature is only active after TPS6281x-Q1 has been enabled at least once because the supply voltage was applied. The discharge function is enabled as soon as the device is disabled, in thermal shutdown, or in undervoltage lockout. The minimum supply voltage required for the discharge function to remain active typically is 2 V. Output discharge is not activated during a current limit or foldback current limit event.
