The MAX6966/MAX6967 can be configured to awake from shutdown on receipt of a minimum 3ms pulse on the active-low CS input. This hardware-wakeup feature allows a power-management controller or similar ASIC to enable the MAX6966/MAX6967 with preconfigured LED intensity settings.
Shutdown can be programmed to wait up to 4s, fade down the sink currents to zero for a period of 1/16s to 4s, and then shut down. A similar ramp-up from shutdown can be programmed for 1/16s to 4s.
The MAX6966/MAX6967 support hot insertion. All port pins remain high impedance in power-down (V+ = 0V) with up to 8V asserted on them.
The DOUT/OSC pin can be configured as either the serial interface data output or optional PWM clock input. The MAX6966 powers up defaulting as DOUT output. The MAX6967 defaults as OSC input.
