DS1231

Power Monitor


Please check latest availability status for a specific part variant.

Description

With precise, temperature-compensated comparators, the DS1231 Power Monitor Chip monitors input power and a 5V system power supply. If unsafe voltages are detected, a nonmaskable interrupt sends a warning signal to the processor in advance of power failure. Processing is unconditionally halted when power falls below a user-selectable 5% or 10% threshold level, with time to shutdown proportional to the available hold-up time of the power supply. Upon return of power, the DS1231 maintains reset until power conditions stabilize.

The DS1231 enhances system reliability by closely monitoring both processor and upstream power levels, warning of impending failure, and automatically suspending and restarting processor operation. An input sense also supports a connection to switched inputs such as an opto-isolator for LED function. All external reset components (i.e., pull-up resistor and delay timing capacitor) are contained in one package, saving space and cost.
