IXYS Corporation today announced the availability of high-precision, low power voltage detectors in ultra-small packages. It is an expansion of IXYS’ product portfolio in this area of power management ICs. With accuracy as high as 0.8 percent, and current consumption as low as 0.4 microA, they are well-suited for a variety of mobile and battery-powered consumer electronics and medical applications.
These new voltage detectors can detect input voltages ranging from 0.8V to 6V, with 0.1V increments. Either ‘CMOS’ or ‘open drain’ output configuration is available. Additional features include separate ‘SENSE’ input, adjustable or pre-programmed ‘Release Time’, watchdog function, and manual reset.
Manufactured using laser trimming technology, they are ideal for MCU and microprocessor reset circuitry, battery backup circuits, power failure detection, power-on reset circuits, or battery life and voltage monitors.
The new ICs are available in the following ultra-small packages: USP-3 (1.2mm x 1.2mm x 0.6 mm), USP-4 (1.2mm x 1.6mm x 0.6mm), SSOT-24 (2.0mm x 2.1mm x 1.1mm), SOT-25 (2.8mm x 2.9mm x 1.3mm), USP-6C (1.8mm x 2.0mm x 0.6mm), USPN-4 (0.9mm x 1.2mm x 0.38mm), and USPN-4B02 (0.95mm x 0.75mm x 0.38mm). The base part numbers are IXD5118, IXD5120, IXD5121-24, IXD5126, and IXD5127. There are a number of product series/options IXYS customers can choose from.
