SLVSB76B August 2012 – August 2019 TPS63036
After being enabled, the device starts operating. The average input current limit ramps up from an initial 400 mA following the output voltage increasing. At an output voltage of about 1.2 V, the current limit is at its nominal value. If the output voltage does not increase, the current limit will also not increase. The device ramps up the output voltage in a controlled manner even if a large capacitor is connected at the output. When the output voltage does not increase above 1.2 V, the device assumes a short circuit at the output, and keeps the current limit low to protect itself and the application. At a short on the output during operation, the current limit also is decreased accordingly.
