DS1238 MicroManager

The DS1238 MicroManagers are functionally similar to the DS1236 but with pin-compatibility with the MAX691 MAX693 and MAX695 series. Additionally, the DS1238 allows for external Timing control. These highly integrated monitors perform the following functions critical to microprocessor-controlled systems: A precision temperature-compensated reference and Comparator continuously monitor the system power supply. If Vcc levels breach threshold tolerance, an internal power-fail signal is generated which activates reset. When power returns to tolerance, the DS1238 holds reset for a minimum of 50ms (typically 100ms) while the power supply and processor stabilize. Optional threshold levels are available: the DS1238-5 and DS1238A-5 for resets at 5% of a 5V supply; and the DS1238-10 and DS1238A-10 for 10% of a 5V supply. The watchdog Timer circuitry monitors software execution. If a strobe input is not driven low prior to user-set timeouts the Timer forces a processor reset. The DS1238 enables external override by debouncing the pushbutton input. A minimum active reset pulse width is provided. An on-chip Switch directs SRAM power between Vcc or an external battery, whichever is greater. This switched supply CAN also back up a CMOS Microprocessor To enable write protection upon the detection of a power-fail condition, the chip enable output is held to within 0.3V Vcc or to within 0.7V of battery input. Alternative Oscillator control pins provide either external or internal Clock Timing for both the reset pulse width and the watchdog timeout period. DS1238 MicroManagers are complete system monitors for SRAM Microprocessor software, and systems power. They provide power-on reset for smooth Microprocessor reboots, convert CMOS SRAM to nonvolatile operation, and provide flexible Timing controls. The extensive integration of functionality ensures reliable operation in battery-backed, processor-controlled systems while reducing component count, saving power, simplifying board layout, and saving cost and space.
