FAULT Bus Output with One-Fails-All-Fail

During normal operation, The FAULT pin of TPS92623-Q1 is weakly pulled up by an internal pullup current source, I(FAULT_pullup). If any fault scenario occurs, the FAULT pin is strongly pulled low by the internal pulldown current sink, I(FAULT_pulldown) to report out the fault alarm.

Meanwhile, the TPS92623-Q1 also monitors the FAULT pin voltage internally. If the FAULT pin of the TPS92623-Q1 is pulled low by external current sink below VIL(FAULT), the current output is turned off even though there is no fault detected on owned outputs. The device does not resume to normal operation until the FAULT pin voltage rises above VIH(FAULT).

Based on this feature, the TPS92623-Q1 device is able to construct a FAULT bus by tying FAULT pins from multiple TPS92623-Q1 devices to achieve one-fails-all-fail function as Figure 7-6 showing. The lower side TPS92623-Q1 (B) detects any kind of LED fault and pulls low the FAULT pin. The low voltage on FAULT pin is detected by upper side TPS92623-Q1 (A) because the FAULT pins are connected of two devices. The upper side TPS92623-Q1 (A) turns off all output current for each channel as a result. If the FAULT pins of each TPS92623-Q1 are all connected to drive the base of an external PNP transistor as illustrated in Figure 7-7, the one-fails–all-fail function is disabled and only the faulty channel device is turned off.
