SLVSBC6C March 2013 – December 2019 TPS84A20
The TPS84A20 has been designed to prevent the low-side MOSFET from discharging a pre-biased output. During pre-biased startup, the low-side MOSFET does not turn on until the high-side MOSFET has started switching. The high-side MOSFET does not start switching until the slow start voltage exceeds the voltage on the VADJ pin. Refer to Figure 28.
