SLVSFS6A May 2021 – September 2021 TPS629210-Q1
The voltage applied at the Enable pin of the TPS629210-Q1 is compared to a fixed threshold rising voltage. This allows the user to drive the pin by a slowly changing voltage and enables the use of an external RC network to achieve a power-up delay.
The Precise Enable input allows the use of a user programmable undervoltage lockout by adding a resistor divider to the input of the Enable pin.
The enable input threshold for a falling edge is lower than the rising edge threshold. The TPS629210-Q1 starts operation when the rising threshold is exceeded. For proper operation, the EN pin must be terminated and must not be left floating. Pulling the EN pin low forces the device into shutdown. In this mode, the internal high-side and low-side MOSFETs are turned off and the entire internal control circuitry is switched off.
An internal resistor pulls the EN pin to GND and avoids the pin to be floating. This prevents an uncontrolled start-up of the device in case the EN pin cannot be driven to a low level safely. With EN low, the device is in Shutdown mode. The device is turned on with EN set to a high level. The pulldown control circuit disconnects the pulldown resistor on the EN pin once the internal control logic and the reference have been powered up. With EN set to a low level, the device enters Shutdown mode and the pulldown resistor is activated again.
