MAX6363H, MAX6363L, MAX6363P

SOT23, Low-Power Microprocessor Supervisory Circuits with Battery Backup

Please check latest availability status for a specific part variant.


The MAX6361–MAX6364 supervisory circuits reduce the complexity and number of components required for power-supply monitoring and battery control functions in microprocessor (µP) systems. The circuits significantly improve system reliability and accuracy compared to that obtainable with separate ICs or discrete components. Their functions include µP reset, backup battery switchover, and power failure warning.

The MAX6361–MAX6364 operate from supply voltages as low as +1.2V. The factory-preset reset threshold voltage ranges from 2.32V to 4.63V (see Ordering Information). These devices provide a manual reset input (MAX6361), watchdog timer input (MAX6362), battery-on output (MAX6363), and an auxiliary adjustable reset input (MAX6364). In addition, each part type is offered in three reset output versions: an active-low push-pull reset, an active-low open-drain reset, and an active-high open-drain reset (see Selector Guide at end of data sheet).
