Thought this forum is also meant for discussion and raised question.
If you think I made mistake by posting this basic question I Apologize for that and I exit from this forum.
Nobody said you made a mistake posting on the forum. I said you should do some basic research before posting.
The datasheet I referenced is the datasheet linked in Reply#4 by dc42 of THIS post. (the same thread where you posted your question, which , if you read the post title, is NOT what you are asking. The term for posting a question not relevant to the OP’s thread is “hijacking” . (I doubt he will mind since he is long gone) Read the post title before posting. You are not trying to " Conrol the output voltage of a buck converter …". You are trying to gate the output of a converter, which warrants a new topic.(while that may seem like a form of “control”, it is not what the OP was asking about so hence is deemed irrelevant from a forum perspective. This policy is to keep the threads “PURE” and uncorrupted by discussion not pertinent to the post title.
Since Sunday shops were closed couldn’t get components thought of checking in Google to find any solution and landed here in this forum.
posted this question in this forum thinking some one might have working solution before I start doing that transistor controlled pin no 5 of lm2956.
(there is no need to ask anyone else on the forum if they have done it if it is shown in the datasheet complete with schematics)
All you had to do is read this post from the beginning. (or Google T.I.com and search by part number) The reason we expect would-be posters to research their topic first is that more than half of all would-be questions can be resolved with a Google search. Had you read this post you would have found that datasheet and had you read the datasheet you would have found the examples for exactly what you are asking for . Focus on the content of my suggestion. “Do your homework before posting” does not translate to “don’t post a question on the forum.” It translates to “Don’t post a question until you have researched the topic with Google.” It’s that simple. This may come as a surprise to you but probably 75% or more of ALL people who post on the forum have not even Googled their topic. You see what I mean ?
As I am fond of saying, there is a special Hell reserved for people who don’t read datasheets:
It is a place where nothing works and everything smokes as soon as you apply power…
I was having different version of data sheet in that I couldn’t find the section (page 26,27 & 28) that you had mentioned in the reply.
Texas Instruments is not a small company. It should not be hard to find their website.
Google search for TI.com
Click the first link at the top of the page and that gets you here.
Entering “LM2596” in the search bar yields the links for the converter chip.
Here is the T.I website page for the LM2596.
See the “Download datasheet” link on the right ?
This is what you get when you click on the
“Download Datasheet” link.
which is the same datasheet I linked, which I got from Reply#4 of this post.
Anyhow my sincere thanks for your time and answer.
FYI, it is customary to click someone’s karma button if they nail your question… It’s a way of saying “Thank You” that provides incentive for people to continue to help other people. While the truth is that the people who do most of the helping don’t do it for the karma points, it is nevertheless a nice gesture if they have answered your question. I just thought I should mention that in case you didn’t know
