Dear Analog IC Designers,

I know you think it’s terribly clever to squeeze 20 features into an 8-pin package, but please—PLEASE!—stop combining other functions (standby, shutdown, etc.) with the inverting input pin. You probably think it’s totally cool if the current flowing through my loop compensator briefly triggers overvoltage protection at turn-on. But did you think that, because of the clever way I’m using your chip, it prevents the damn supply from coming up at cold temperatures? Of course you didn’t!
