Adding Autorestart Capability to the MAX16046 EEPROM-Programmable System Manager

By: Franco Contadini

Abstract: The MAX16046 is an EEPROM-configurable system manager that can monitor, sequence, track, and margin multiple system voltages. This design idea will show that by simply adding a small external device to the MAX16046, you can perform a system autorestart following a command from a microcontroller or an external key switch.
