Michael,

This is Jeff Marvin from LTC.  Due to these start-up issues experienced by some customers we have released the LTC3589-2.  The LTC3589-2 is set to not wait for the 300mV comparators.  It will enable even if circuits on the board are feeding voltage to regulator outputs and holding them above 300mV.  The 300mV rule can be enabled by I2C but is disabled by default in the LTC3589-2.  Each output does include 2K Ohm pull-down resistors which attempt to discharge the output when disabled and provide a clean power-up sequence.  All of this is captured in the LTC3589 datasheet which describes the differences between the three versions of the part.

Regards,

Jeff Marvin

This part gave us some problems because we had other circuity on the board which wasn't powered by the PMIC and found that when the PMIC was changed to this part (by the supplier), it wouldn't start up.

Do note take note of this from the datasheet:

"To ensure correct start-up sequencing, the regulators outputs are monitored by voltage comparators which require each output to discharge below 300mV before re-enabling."
