ABSTRACT
The article discusses the significance of using voltage supervisory circuits as a solution for handheld gaming applications. By using such circuits, designers can better protect the demanding designs from a variety of low power-related problems. In handheld gaming applications, like most portable electronic applications, low-power conditions can wreak havoc and cause much annoyance to the user. In this case, the use of an external voltage detector may be preferable. The wide range of these available devices allows greater flexibility to match the handheld system's requirements for the trip point's minimum/maximum voltage range, current consumption and time that the reset signal is asserted after the system has returned to the valid operating voltage.
