LTC2924: DONE signal does not output Low

Dear ADI engineer.

We are designing a power supply system using the LTC2924.

OUT1-4 are all High, and the four surrounding Power supply ICs are running. A voltage of about 0.9V is input to all IN1-4.

However, the Done signal does not go low. The figure below shows the waveforms of DONE and TMR at that time.

          Fig1. TMR & DONE wave

Wave   CH1:DONE,   CH2:TMR

The circuit conditions are as follows.

- VCC=5V, GND=0V,

- The DONE & FAULT pin is pulled up to 1.8V with 4.7kΩ.

- A 0.015uF capacitor is connected between GND on the TMR pin.

- The HYS/CFG pin is pulled down with 49.9kΩ.

- PGT pin is connected to GND.

When simulating with LTspice, the DONE signal was low.

We are in trouble because we do not know the cause.

Please consider what you can think of.

Thank you.
