SLUSC60B December 2017 – October 2019 UCC28064A
Overloading of the gate-drive outputs, VREF, or both can dissipate excess power within the device which may raise the internal temperature of the circuits beyond a safe level. Even normal power dissipation can generate excess heat if the thermal impedance is too high or the ambient temperature is too high. When the UCC28064A detects an internal over-temperature condition it will shutdown the outputs and trigger a full soft-start condition. When the internal device junction temperature has cooled below the thermal hysteresis temperature, operation will resume under soft-start control.
