Critical loads often employ parallel-connected power supplies with redundancy in order to enhance system reliability. The MAX8535/MAX8536/MAX8585 are highly integrated but inexpensive MOSFET controllers that provide isolation and redundant power capability in high-reliability systems. The MAX8535/MAX8585 are used in 12V systems, and have an internal charge pump to drive the gates of the n-channel pass elements to VCC + 10V. The MAX8536 is used in 3.3V and 5V systems, with a chargepump output of VCC + 5V.

During startup, the MAX8535/MAX8536/MAX8585 monitor the voltage drop across external MOSFETs. Once VCC approaches or exceeds the bus voltage, the MOSFETs are turned on. The MAX8535/MAX8536/MAX8585 feature a dual-purpose TIMER input. A single external resistor from TIMER to ground sets the turn-on speed of the external MOSFETs. Optionally, the TIMER input can be used as a logic-enable pin. Once the device is turned on, the MAX8535/MAX8536/MAX8585 monitor the load, protecting against overvoltage, undervoltage, and reverse-current conditions.

Overvoltage and undervoltage fault thresholds are adjustable and can be disabled. The current-limit trip points are set by the external MOSFETs' RDS(ON), reducing component count. An open-drain logic-low fault output indicates if an overvoltage, undervoltage, or reverse-current fault occurs.

All devices come in a space-saving 8-pin µMAX® package and are specified over the extended -40°C to +85°C temperature range.

Product Detail

The MAX8536 evaluation (EV) kit circuit demonstrates the functionality of the MAX8536 ORing MOSFET controller that provides redundancy and fault isolation to highly reliable power systems. The EV kit board can operate in 5V and 3.3V systems. The EV kit is configured for 5V operation.

During startup, the EV kit monitors the voltage difference between a power supply and a power bus. Once the voltage difference is less than 0.4V (typ), the IC turns on two ORing MOSFETs, linking the power supply and power bus. Once the MOSFETs are on, the EV kit monitors the load current and voltages to protect against undervoltage (UVP), overvoltage (OVP), and reverse-current fault conditions.

The OVP and UVP thresholds are adjustable and can be disabled. The UVP threshold is set to 2.9V, and the OVP threshold is set to 5.75V. An active-low FAULT signal output is provided for circuit monitoring.
