App note: Stopping reverse current flow in standard hot swap applications

an_ti_snva673

Application report from Texas Instruments about a simple circuit that blocks reverse currents. Link here (PDF)

The proposed circuit uses an inexpensive operational amplifier to sense the condition of the output voltage exceeding the input voltage, and subsequently disable the hot swap controller, stopping the flow of reverse current (current flow from the output (load) into the input (supply)). The device used for testing this method is the LM5069, configured to provide hot swap control of input voltages from 11V to 22V to a load capacitor of 220 µF. A schematic of the solution and results are provided.
