The LTC2935 ultra-low power voltage monitor provides system initialization, power-fail warning and reset generation functions. Low quiescent current (500nA typical) makes the LTC2935 an ideal choice for battery-operated applications.
Three binary threshold-select inputs configure one of eight integrated reset thresholds, ranging from 1.6V to 3.45V in pre-determined increments. Early warning of an impending low voltage condition is provided at the powerfail output (PFO), whose threshold is above the configured reset threshold. Supervisory circuits monitor VCC and pull RST low when VCC drops below the configured reset threshold. When VCC is rising from an under-threshold condition, an internal reset timer is started after exceeding the reset threshold by 5%. A 200ms reset timeout delays the return of the RST output to a high state. A pushbutton switch connected to the MR input is typically used to force a manual reset. Outputs RST and PFO are available with open-drain (LTC2935-1/LTC2935-3) or active pull-up (LTC2935-2/LTC2935-4) circuits. Operating temperature range is from –40°C to 85°C.

DC2042A - Demo Board for:
LTC3588-1 Piezoelectric Energy Harvesting Power Supply
LTC3108 Ultralow Voltage Step-Up Converter and Power Manager
LTC3105 400mA Step-Up DC/DC Converter with Maximum Power Point Control and 250mV Start-Up
LTC3459 10V Micropower Synchronous Boost Converter in ThinSOT
LTC2935 Ultra-Low Power Supervisor with Power-Fail Output, Selectable Thresholds
The DC2080 is a versatile energy harvesting demo board that is capable of accepting piezoelectric, solar, 4mA to 20mA loops, thermal powered energy sources or any high impedance AC or DC source. The board contains four independent circuits consisting of the following EH ICs:
- LTC3588-1: Piezoelectric Energy Harvesting Power Supply
- LTC3108: Ultralow Voltage Step-Up Converter and Power Manager
- LTC3105: Step-Up DC/DC Converter with Power Point Control and LDO Regulator
- LTC3459: 10V Micropower Synchronous Boost Converter
- LTC2935-2 and LTC2935-4: Ultralow Power Supervisor with Power-Fail Output Selectable Thresholds
The board is designed to connect to the Silicon Labs EFM32™ Wonder Gecko Starter Kit (Part No:EFM32WG-STK3800). It also includes two energy harvester transducers (TEG and Solar) and a terminal block for connecting a high impedance AC source. In addition, many turrets are provided, making it easy to connect additional transducers to the board. The board contains multiple jumpers that allow the board to be configured in various ways. The standard build for the board has 4 jumpers installed out of the possible 12 jumpers. The board is very customizable to the end users’ needs. This compatibility makes it a perfect evaluation tool for any low power energy harvesting system. Please refer to the individual data sheets for the operation of each power management circuit. The application section of the demo manual describes the system level functionality of this board and the various ways it can be used in early design prototyping.
Demonstration circuit 2321A is a low power wireless sensor node development platform equipped with an E-ink display for user feedback. The system is capable of monitoring and managing its available energy, logging information from sensors and sharing this data over a wireless network.
The board is designed to connect to the DC2344A or DC2509A energy harvesting demonstration boards which output a regulated power supply as well as status information from energy harvesting ICs and their backup batteries. Two coulomb counters on the DC2321A allow the processor to monitor the energy output of these batteries which will vary depending on the amount of energy which can be harvested from the system’s surroundings.
A DC2274A-A SmartMesh Manager must be used in order to evaluate the networking features of the DC2321A.
