Adjusting the Factory-Programmed Current Limit

The current limit is a brick-wall scheme and the factory-programmed current limit value can be programmed to a set of discrete value (100%, 80%, or 60% of its default value), as specified in the Section 6.5 table. This adjustment can be done by changing the input impedance of the FB_PG pin represented by the parallel resistance of RFB_PG(TOP) || RFB_PG(BOTTOM). The FB_PG pin has dual functionality: adjusting the ICL value and setting the power-good (PG) assert threshold.

Prior to start up, the input impedance of the FB_PG pin is sampled and the ICL value is adjusted based on the input impedance.

Note:

The current limit programmability is dependent on the output voltage. For voltages below 0.4 V, the current limit cannot be programmed. For voltages between 0.4 V and 1.2 V, the current limit cannot be adjusted and is always set to 100%. 8-1 describes this behavior.

Table 8-1 Programmable Current Limit vs Output Voltage
NOMINAL OUTPUT VOLTAGE (V) RFB_PG(BOTTOM) (kΩ) RFB_PG(TOP) (kΩ) ICL SETTING (%)
VOUT(nom) ≥ 1.2 V
RFB_PG(BOTTOM) = 0.2 V / 16 μA
RFB_PG(TOP) = RFB_PG(BOTTOM) × ( VOUT(nom) / 0.2 V × K – 1)
with K = PG threshold (%VOUT)
100
RFB_PG(BOTTOM) = 0.2 V / 4 μA

RFB_PG(BOTTOM) = 0.2 V / 2 μA

0.4 V ≤ VOUT(nom) < 1.2 V
RFB_PG(BOTTOM) = 0.2 V / 6 μA

Table 8-2 provides values for various output voltages using 1% resistors.
