SBVS311A November 2019 – March 2020 TPS7A54
In many applications, fault events can occur that damage devices in the system. Short circuits and excessive heat are the most common fault events for power supplies. The TPS7A54 implements circuitry to protect the device and its load during these events. Continuously operating in these fault conditions or above a junction temperature of 140°C is not recommended because the long-term reliability of the device is reduced.
