MAX16136 evaluation kit (EV kit) is fully tested and assembled circuit that demonstrates the capabilities of the MAX16136, a high-precision reset IC offering window-threshold and window-watchdog monitoring. The MAX16136 EV kit is designed to facilitate the evaluation of various features of the MAX16136 such as input overvoltage/ undervoltage faults, window-watchdog violation, and active-low OV latching/unlatching capability. The MAX16136 EV kit operates over the automotive temperature range.
The reset signal at active-low RST asserts low when the voltage at IN falls outside of the overvoltage/undervoltage windowthreshold settings. An overvoltage signal at active-low OV latches low to indicate overvoltage condition at IN and a watchdog output signal at active-low WDO pulses low when the signal period at WDI falls outside of the window-watchdog timing. The EV kit also features a push-button switch at active-low CLR to unlatch the overvoltage fault output (active-low OV). Two indicators, OV_STATUS LED and UV_STATUS LED, provide visual fault status at the input for overvoltage and undervoltage conditions.
