Highly integrated voltage supervisors

March 2006
Portable Design;Mar2006, Vol. 12 Issue 3, p28
The article discusses the use of the highly integrated voltage supervisors. The MCP1316-MCP1322 family with 10 voltage supervisors include a manual reset, a watchdog timer, push-pull or open-drain reset output combinations, and factory trip-points from 2 Volts that offers 100-mV increments. This mechanism is used in temperatures ranging from -40 degrees Celsius up to 125 degrees Celsius. The highly integrated voltage supervisors controls the activity of the microprocessor in digital systems. Its normal power consumption is 5µA.
