The LTC6995 provides a simple, accurate low frequency clock uniquely configurable for long duration power-on reset and watchdog timer applications. In this example the LTC6995 combines an programmable oscillator with precision circuitry and logic to achieve an accurate 1 second POR. This resistor-settable POR can be programmed for a period from 1ms to 4.8 hours. Upon power-on or a reset signal, the LTC6995 will initiate a full output clock cycle and the polarity of the output can be configured for active-low or active-high operation. The LTC6995 can operated under high acceleration, vibration and temperature extremes and do not require timing capacitors, crystals, microcontroller or programming.
