The MAX8533 also features unique, adjustable overvoltage protection to protect itself and the downstream dc-dc controllers. An absolute maximum rating of 16V allows it to withstand inductive-kickback voltages during board removal. Two enable inputs, EN (logic enable) and LPEN (local-power enable) and a POK (power good) output, provide flexible sequencing.
The MAX8533EUB is available in a 10-pin microMAX package—50% smaller than competing packages—and is specified for the extended-industrial temperature range (-40°C to 85°C).
