The device has an internal pulldown MOSFET that connects a RPULLDOWN resistor to ground when the device is disabled to actively discharge the output voltage. The active discharge circuit is activated by the enable pin or by the undervoltage lockout (UVLO).
Do not rely on the active discharge circuit for discharging a large amount of output capacitance after the input supply has collapsed because reverse current can possibly flow from the output to the input. This reverse current flow can cause damage to the device. Limit reverse current to no more than 5% of the device rated current for a short period of time.
