Internal Current Limit

The TPS737xx internal current limit helps protect the regulator during fault conditions. Foldback current-limit helps to protect the regulator from damage during output short-circuit conditions by reducing current-limit when VOUT drops below 0.5 V. See Figure 10 in the Typical Characteristicssection.

Note from Figure 10 that approximately –0.2 V of VOUT results in a current-limit of 0 mA. Therefore, if OUT is forced below –0.2 V before EN goes high, the device may not start up. In applications that work with both a positive and negative voltage supply, the TPS737xx should be enabled first.
