Active Discharge

An internal pulldown MOSFET connects a resistor from OUT to ground when the device is disabled to actively discharge the output capacitance. The active discharge circuit is activated by driving EN low or by the voltage on IN falling below the undervoltage lockout (UVLO) threshold.

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.
