Supervisors Offer Trip Point Selection

Intersil introduces two supervisors, the ISL88016 and ISL88017, which offer pin-selectable voltage trip points along with power-on reset (POR) control, supply voltage supervision and manual reset assertion in a six-pin TSOT package. Both supervisors are designed for low power consumption as well as high threshold accuracy and are suitable for portable and battery-powered applications. These supervisors allow users to program the voltage trip point from 1.60 to 2.85 V in 50 mV increments on the ISL88016 and from 2.15 to 4.65 V in 100 mV increments on the ISL88017. Trip point selection is made by connecting the three VSET pins to VDD, GND or floating. By allowing users to select from 26 different VTRIP voltages on each device, the same supervisor part can be used on different platforms and projects without the need to qualify a different part when a custom voltage trip point is needed.
