LT3080 documentation states under absolute maximum ratings:
SET Pin Voltage (Relative to OUT) ±0.3V
In the documentation there's also figure named "Lab supply" (bottom of page 18) with 2 LT3080s. I simulated this circuit in LTspice and it seems that in constant voltage mode the current limiting LT has SET about 1V higher then OUT. Similar thing happens with voltage setting LT in constant current mode.
Is this how this should work?
Note 7 about SET pin current states:
SET pin is clamped to the output with diodes. These diodes only carry current under transient overloads
How is this situation supposed not to damage these diodes (in steady state)?
