Applying a voltage to VDD activates the Power-On-Reset circuit which holds RESET low for an adjustable period of time. This allows the power supply and system oscillator to stabilize before the processor can execute code.
Low VDD detection circuitry protects the user's system from low voltage conditions, resetting the system when VDD falls below its minimum preset voltage threshold VTH1. Reset remains asserted until VDD returns to its proper operating level and stabilizes. Two additional voltage monitoring inputs, V2MON (preset) and V3MON (adjustable), monitor other supplies to provide reliable system operation.
The ISL88021 V3MON input monitors for undervoltage (UV) conditions whereas the ISL88022 V3MON input allows monitoring for overvoltage (OV) conditions. The monitored voltage on V3MON on either device is compared via a resistor divider to a 600mV internal reference. Hence, any voltage more or less positive than this reference can be accurately monitored to meet specific system level requirements or to fine-tune the threshold for applications requiring higher precision.
These devices also let users increase the Power-On-Reset time-out delay by connecting a capacitor between CPOR and ground. This lengthens the period of an internal clock counter thereby increasing the time between voltage compliance and reset outputs signaling.
A manual reset input provides debounce circuitry for minimum reset component count.
