Voltage at the EN pin controls the start-up or remote shutdown of the LMR436x0-Q1 family of devices. The part stays shut down as long as the EN pin voltage is less than VEN-WAKE = 0.5 V. During shutdown, the input current drawn by the device typically drops down to 0.25 µA (VIN = 13.5 V). With the voltage at the EN pin greater than VEN-WAKE, the device enters device standby mode and the internal LDO powers up to generate VCC. As the EN voltage increases further, approaching VEN-VOUT, the device finally starts to switch, entering start-up mode with a soft start. During the device shutdown process, when the EN input voltage measures less than (VEN-VOUT – VEN-HYST), the regulator stops switching and re-enters device standby mode. Any further decrease in the EN pin voltage, below VEN-WAKE, and the device is then firmly shut down. The high-voltage compliant EN input pin can be connected directly to the VIN input pin if remote precision control is not needed. The EN input pin must not be allowed to float. The various EN threshold parameters and their values are listed in Section 7.5. Figure 8-2 shows the precision enable behavior and Figure 8-3 shows a typical remote EN start-up waveform in an application. Once EN goes high, after a delay of about 1 ms, the output voltage begins to rise with a soft start and reaches close to the final value in about 3.5 ms (tss). After a delay of about 2.5 ms (tPGOOD_ACT), the PGOOD flag goes high. During start-up, the device is not allowed to enter FPWM mode until the soft-start time has elapsed. This time is measured from the rising edge of EN. Check Section 184.108.40.206 for component selection.
