Processor Supervisor Monitors Voltage With Programmable Delay

Diodes’ PT7M3808 family of microprocessor supervisory circuits monitor system voltages from 0.4V to 5V and a feature threshold accuracy from 0.5% and an adjustable delay time from 1.25 ms to 10 ms, Reportedly, this allows the devices to enable power-on reset functionality for microprocessors and other digital systems while also consuming minimal power. Applications include notebook and desktop computers, and battery-powered portable equipment for markets ranging from data centers to security systems.

 

Offered in fixed-threshold versions for standard voltage rails between 0.9V and 5.0V, and with an adjustable threshold version down to 0.4V, the PT7M3808 uses a precision reference to provide a 0.5% negative-going input threshold accuracy when monitoring voltages up to 3.3V and 1% accuracy at voltages from 3.3V to 5.0V. The delay time is adjusted from 1.25ms to 10ms by connecting an external capacitor to the CT pin; a longer 20ms delay can be achieved by disconnecting the CT pin, while a 300ms delay is possible by connecting the CT pin to VDD with a resistor.

Fierce AI Week

Register today for Fierce AI Week - a free virtual event | August 10-12

Advances in AI and Machine Learning are adding an unprecedented level of intelligence to everything through capabilities such as speech processing and image & facial recognition. An essential event for design engineers and AI professionals, Engineering AI sessions during Fierce AI Week explore some of the most innovative real-world applications today, the technological advances that are accelerating adoption of AI and Machine Learning, and what the future holds for this game-changing technology.

 

The PT7M3808 has a very low quiescent current, typically 2.8µA, making it well-suited for battery-powered applications. Available in SOT26 and DFN2020-6 packages, the PT7M3808 takes up very little board space for both new and drop-in replacement designs. If you thirst for greater knowledge, a PT7M3808 datasheet is available for your perusal delights.
