SC70/µDFN, Single/Dual Low-Voltage, Low-Power µP Reset Circuits

Please check latest availability status for a specific part variant.


The MAX6381–MAX6390 microprocessor (µP) supervisory circuits monitor power-supply voltages from +1.8V to +5.0V while consuming only 3µA of supply current at +1.8V. Whenever VCC falls below the factory-set reset thresholds, the reset output asserts and remains asserted for a minimum reset timeout period after VCC rises above the reset threshold. Reset thresholds are available from +1.58V to +4.63V, in approximately 100mV increments. Seven minimum reset timeout delays ranging from 1ms to 1200ms are available.

The MAX6381/MAX6384/MAX6387 have a push-pull active-low reset output. The MAX6382/MAX6385/MAX6388 have a push-pull active-high reset output, and the MAX6383/MAX6386/MAX6389/MAX6390 have an open-drain active-low reset output. The MAX6384/MAX6385/MAX6386 also feature a debounced manual reset input (with internal pullup resistor). The MAX6387/MAX6388/MAX6389 have an auxiliary input for monitoring a second voltage. The MAX6390 offers a manual reset input with a longer VCC reset timeout period (1120ms or 1200ms) and a shorter manual reset timeout (140ms or 150ms).

The MAX6381/MAX6382/MAX6383 are available in 3-pin SC70 and 6-pin µDFN packages and the MAX6384–MAX6390 are available in 4-pin SC70 and 6-pin µDFN packages.
