Supervisory ICs promote power supply reliability.

Press Release Summary:

Quad-channel voltage supervisors ADM2914/ADM12914 and microprocessor supervisor ADM6339 help ensure voltage remains within specified levels. While ADM12914 detects over-voltage (OV) and under-voltage (UV) conditions with ±0.8% accuracy, ADM2914 delivers ±1.5% accuracy. Able to monitor up to 3 positive and one negative voltage supplies, ADM6339 offers ±0.8% accuracy and incorporates internally pre-trimmed UV threshold options for monitoring 1.8, 2.5, 3, 3.3, 5, and -5V supply voltages.

Highly Accurate Supervisory Circuits Provide Greater Design Flexibility and Improved System Power Supply Reliability

- Analog Devices' expanded supervisory circuit portfolio features ICs with up to two times the accuracy over temperature of competing devices.

NORWOOD, Mass-- Analog Devices, Inc. (ADI), a global leader in high-performance semiconductors for signal-processing applications, today expanded its portfolio of multi-voltage supervisory ICs with new circuits for monitoring negative-voltage and over- and under-voltage conditions. The ADM2914 and the ADM12914 quad-channel voltage supervisors and ADM6339 microprocessor supervisor ICs enhance overall system reliability by helping ensure voltage levels remain within specified levels. The new circuits provide up to twice the accuracy of other devices designed to monitor voltage supply rails in communications, industrial and instrumentation applications.

The ADM12914 detects over-voltage and under-voltage (OV/UV) conditions with 1.5 times the accuracy (±0.8 percent over temperature) of competing supervisory circuits. This translates to improved system operation as the new supervisory IC prevents power supplies in medical ultrasound, telecommunications equipment and other applications from slipping out of range. This is especially important in today's power supply systems, which often operate at below 1 V and where an over-voltage condition could cause catastrophic system failure. The ADM2914/ADM12914 also includes an input-supply shunt regulator that enables the device to be run off of higher-voltage supplies, including 12-V operation in communications infrastructure equipment and lithium-ion batteries used in hybrid vehicles.

The ADM6339 quad microprocessor voltage supervisory circuit provides two times the accuracy (±0.8 percent over temperature) of other devices in its class and monitors up to three positive and one negative voltage supplies. The ADM6339 incorporates internally pre-trimmed under-voltage threshold options for monitoring 1.8-V, 2.5-V, 3-V, 3.3-V, 5-V, and -5-V supply voltages and is available with one to three adjustable threshold options to extend design flexibility.

As part of a complete signal chain the ADM12914 and ADM6339 supervisory circuits are compatible with ADI's point-of-load regulators, including the ADP1740, ADP1741 and ADP2102, ADP2105, ADP2106, ADP2107, ADP2108, family.
