I use the TLE8366EV like that to generate a 5V from a 12V
I calculated the resistance values using this equation
But I don't have 0.6V on pin FB so I don't have an output of 5V (but only 3.73V)
Why don't PMIC(TLF35584 ) datasheets list the operating temperature range?
Can Infineon specify the operating temperature range for TLF35584?
- If you have a tool that can easily calculate/simulate junction temperature, could you share it?
- If there is no tool, please tell me how to calculate the junction temperature from the measured temperature.
Since PMIC have multiple power supplies, it is difficult to check the power consumption during temperature measurement in my environment.
- The simplest way to judge is by operating temperature, but TLF35584 does not mention operating temperature.
Can Infineon provide operating temperatures?

I am trying to ensure correct SPI communication with TLE94103 component, and the problem that i faced is that i always get NPOR bit set to zero even if i send a clear for global status register it is always set to zero so i always have global error set.
Looking forward for your help, thank you.Show Less
How to choose the package of Rsense resistor? Especially considering the fault condition where the fault current reaches 10mA. Resistance package selection in the worst case. Please provide the method and analysis for calculation.Show Less
The Cadence symbol for TDA21570 provided by Infineon doesn't quite match the datasheet:
According to the datasheet pins 1,31, 42, and 43 are NC. However, the symbol defines the pin 43 as PGND and the pin 42 is completely absent from the schematics symbol although there is a keepout in the footprint around the area where the pin 42 should be. I guess the main question is about the pin 43. Should I assume that the symbol is wrong and the pin should better be left unconnected?
Please reference the following post:
Is there a statement from Infineon regarding this or any reports stating the differences?
I need to know if the process of the die changed, if it’s a different size, etc.
If changes are significant, the parts will need to be requalified.Show Less
I am designing a high-side switcher using BT6163D as the below circuitry:
When A is 0V and VBB is 30V, why B and output is 27.1V? The behavior is correct or not?
But when A is 3.3V, output becomes 30V (equal to VBB)
The values on page.34 of the 1ED34x1Mx12M Datasheet indicate a typical high level output current of 11A and a low level current of 7.5A, but there is also a min value. Which value should I use as the limit value calculation option for the driving resistor during design: type or min?
In addition, the remarks describe the testing conditions: the Rg resistance is 0.1 ohms, which is confusing for me.It is so tiny,why is the peak current output only 11A/7A?
6EDL7141 BPA Motor Control GUIに関して、1点教えてください。
EVAL_6EDL7141_TRAP_1SHをBPA Motor Control GUI使用して、動作させようとしています。
この評価ボードを1PWM with hallモードで動作させるにはGUI上でどのような設定をすればよろしいでしょうか？
6PWMモードでは動作確認ができているのですが、1PWM with hallでの動作ができません。
