pin is the main supply pin and should
be decoupled to SGND with a low ESR capacitor located
close to the pin.
NC (Pin 2):
pin has a precision IC enable
threshold of 1.35V (rising) with 120mV of hysteresis. It is
used to implement an undervoltage lockout (UVLO) circuit.
See Application Information section for implementing a
UVLO function. When the
pin is pulled below a
(0.7V), a low current shutdown mode is
entered, all internal circuitry is disabled and the V
ply current is reduced to approximately 10µA. Typical
pin input bias current is <10µA and the pin is internally
clamped to 6V.
The soft-start pin is used to program the sup-
ply soft-start function. The pin is connected to V
ceramic capacitor (C
) and 200kΩ series resistor. During
start-up, the supply output voltage slew rate is controlled
to produce a 2µA average current through the soft-start
coupling capacitor. Use the following formula to calculate
for a given output voltage slew rate:
See the application section for more information on setting
the rise time of the output voltage during start-up. Shorting
this pin to SGND disables the soft-start function.
BURST_EN (Pin 5):
The BURST_EN pin is used to enable
or disable Burst Mode operation. Connect the BURST_EN
pin to ground to enable the burst mode function. Connect
the pin to V
to disable the burst mode function.
The output voltage feedback pin, V
externally connected to the supply output voltage via a
resistive divider. The V
pin is internally connected to
the inverting input of the error amplifier. In regulation,
pin is the output of the error amplifier
whose voltage corresponds to the maximum (peak) switch
current per oscillator cycle. The error amplifier is typically
configured as an integrator circuit by connecting an RC
network from the V
pin to SGND. This circuit creates the
dominant pole for the converter regulation control loop.
Specific integrator characteristics can be configured to
optimize transient response. Connecting a 100pF or greater
high frequency bypass capacitor from this pin to ground
is recommended. When Burst Mode operation is enabled
(see Pin 5 description), an internal low impedance clamp
on the V
pin is set at 100mV below the burst threshold,
which limits the negative excursion of the pin voltage.
Therefore, this pin cannot be pulled low with a low imped-
ance source. If the V
pin must be externally manipulated,
do so through a 1kΩ series resistance.
SGND (Pin 8, 17):
The SGND pin is the low noise ground
reference. It should be connected to the –V
side of the
to keep high currents away from this SGND connection.

on PCB layout of grounds.

the current sense amplifier and is connected to the V
side of the sense resistor for step-down applications. The

pin is the positive input for
the current sense amplifier and is connected to the induc-
tor side of the sense resistor for step-down applications.
The sensed inductor current limit is set to 150mV across

PGND (Pin 11):
The PGND pin is the high-current ground
reference for internal low side switch and the V
circuit. Connect the pin directly to the negative terminal of
decoupling capacitor. See the Application Informa-
tion section for helpful hints on PCB layout of grounds.
