Event Type: Live Webinar
Duration: 1 Hour
Supervisors monitor system conditions and respond when specific types of events occur. A classic example of a supervisor is a reset (or power-on reset) IC, which monitors the system supply voltage. During power-up or in the event of a partial or complete interruption in the power supply voltage, the reset IC generates a signal that prevents the microcontroller from executing code until the supply voltage has been correct for a suitable period of time.
More complex supervisors can monitor multiple supplies or digital “heartbeats” for faults. Still others provide controlled power supply sequencing or monitor and debounce switch states. This webinar discusses key concepts and trends in supervisory ICs, as well as ways to ensure the best performance from them.
