The UCCx813-[2,4] devices feature undervoltage lockout protection circuits for controlled operation during power-up and power-down sequences. Both the supply voltage (VVCC) and the reference voltage (VREF) are monitored by the UVLO circuitry. During UVLO, an active-low, self-biasing totem-pole output structure is also incorporated for enhanced power switch protection.
Undervoltage lockout thresholds for the UCCx813-[2,3,4,5] devices are different from the previous generation of UCx84[2,3,4,5] PWM controllers. The thresholds are optimized for two groups of applications: off-line power supplies and DC-DC converters. See Table 1 for the specific thresholds for each device.

The UCCx813-[2,4] feature typical UVLO thresholds of 12.5 V for turnon and 8.3 V for turnoff, providing 4.3 V of hysteresis.
For low voltage inputs, which include battery and 5-V applications, the UCCx813-[3,5] turn on at 4.1 V and turn off at 3.6 V with 0.5 V of hysteresis.
The UCCx813-[0,1] have UVLO thresholds optimized for automotive and battery applications.
During UVLO, the device draws approximately 100 µA of supply current. Once VCC crosses the turnon threshold, the IC supply current increases typically to about 500 µA, over an order of magnitude lower than bipolar counterparts. Figure 11 indicates the supply current behavior at the relative UVLO turnon and turnoff thresholds, not including average OUT current.
