VCC is usually connected to a bias supply of between 14 V and 21 V. To minimize switching ripple voltage on VCC, it should be bypassed with a low-impedance capacitor as close to the VCC and GND pins as possible. The capacitance should be sized to adequately decouple the peak currents due to gate-drive switching at the highest operating frequency. When powered from a poorly-regulated low-impedance supply, an external zener diode is recommended to prevent excessive current into VCC.
The undervoltage-lockout (UVLO) condition is when VCC voltage has not yet reached the turn-on threshold or has fallen below the turn-off threshold, having already been turned on. While in UVLO, the VREF output and most circuits within the device are disabled and VCC current falls significantly below the normal operating level. The same situation applies when VSENSE is below its Enable threshold. This helps minimize power loss during pre-power up and standby conditions.
