I have a question ADP7182.
Now , My custmer using ADP7182.A reverse current prevention diode is inserted between VIN and VOUT.
Considering that the absolute maximum rating VOUT = VIN is taken into consideration, the reverse current prevention diode is inserted.
Is this backflow prevention DI necessary for product specifications?
When using ADP7182, reverse current will only occur if VOUT becomes more negative than VIN. Insertion of the reverse current protection is necessary during instances wherein VOUT becomes more negative than VIN (not when VOUT=VIN) to protect the device.
Thank you for your answer!
