- Superior Upgrade for MAX690 Family
The LTC690 family provides complete power supply monitoring and battery control functions for microprocessor reset, battery backup, CMOS RAM write protection, power failure warning and watchdog timing. A precise internal voltage reference and comparator circuit monitor the power supply line. When an out-of-tolerance condition occurs, the reset outputs are forced to active states and the chip enable output unconditionally write-protects external memory. In addition, the RESET output is guaranteed to remain logic low even with VCC as low as 1V.
The LTC690 family powers the active CMOS RAMs with a charge pumped NMOS power switch to achieve low dropout and low supply current. When primary power is lost, auxiliary power, connected to the battery input pin, powers the RAMs in standby through an efficient PMOS switch.
For an early warning of impending power failure, the LTC690 family provides an internal comparator with a user-defined threshold. An internal watchdog timer is also available, which forces the reset pins to active states when the watchdog input is not toggled prior to a preset timeout period.
