Sequencers/Monitors Integrate Current Monitoring

The MAX16065/MAX16066 are flash-configurable sequencers/monitors that simplify power management and help conserve power consumption. The devices eliminate the need for external current-sense amplifiers to monitor current and thus save both space and cost. Each device can be programmed for monitoring and sequencing system voltages. The MAX16065 manages up to twelve supply voltages simultaneously, and the MAX16066 manages up to eight supply voltages. These sequencers/monitors integrate highly ±2.5% accurate current monitoring and group sequencing to monitor and conserve power. They also feature an analog-to-digital converter (ADC) and nonvolatile fault registers to store and read back fault data. An easy-to-use graphical configuration tool eliminates the need for tedious, time-consuming programming of complex devices like programmable logic devices (CPLDs) and microprocessors. The MAX16065/MAX16066 provide ±1% accurate voltage monitoring and sequencing for complex systems where high reliability is critical. Networking, telecom, servers, and data storage are typical applications. The MAX16065/MAX16066 have a wide 2.8-to-14-V operating voltage range and are fully specified from -40°C to +85°C. The MAX16065 is available in a 48-pin, 7-mm x 7-mm TQFN package; the MAX16066 is available in a 40-pin, 6-mm x 6-mm TQFN package. Samples are now available. The devices are priced at $6.05 each in lots of 1000. MAXIM INTEGRATED PRODUCTS, Sunnyvale, CA. (800) 998-8800.
