I’ve ordered a couple of evaluation board with the MP5016 (EV5016-QH-00A).
I have placed a resistor of 535ohms on the R1 position (Ilimit) setting the current limit to 3.97A.
Connected our old DP6060A programmable load to the output, but the load is quite slow and has a very large input capacitance I think. It seems to disables the board upon connecting, so I connected a resistiveload (see image below). At first I only had the 2.47ohm resistor in series with the switch, but every time I connected the switch the device shuts down and only enables after toggling the enable pin. I read something about a sleep mode that disables the current sense (and limiter) when the load is below 0.38A. So I included the additional 5ohms to inclease steady state load current to about 1.5A.
But still the MP5016 shuts off the output and it only comes back up once I toggle the enable pin. I haven’t altered the evaluation kit besides the added resistor R1. As far as I know the device should have auto retry after 700ms.
Am I missing something?
