Hello, team.


My customer is using STPA003CD-48X and developing new H/W.

In the datasheet (5.3.1 Short circuits and open circuit operation),


>In case of short circuit to ground or Vcc, the amplifier exits from the three-state condition

>only when the output returns inside the limits imposed by an internal voltage comparator.

Could you please explain more details like concrete method to detect the short?


>When a short across the load is present, the power stage sees an over-current and is

>brought in protection mode for 100 μs.

What is the threshold current to detect the short?


Regards, Kurosawa
