TI introduced Nano-Power Ultra-Low Voltage Supervisor with Adjustable Reset Time Delay

Texas Instruments TLV840

Texas Instruments (TI) introduced the family of voltage supervisors or reset ICs that can operate at high voltage levels while maintaining very low quiescent current across the whole VDD and temperature range. TLV840 offers best combination of low power consumption, high accuracy and low propagation delay (tp_HL = 30 μs typical).

Texas Instruments - TLV840

Reset output signal is asserted when the voltage at VDD drops below the negative voltage threshold (VIT-). Reset signal is cleared when VDD rise above VIT- plus hysteresis (VHYS) and the reset time delay (tD) expires. Reset time delay can be programmed by connecting a capacitor between the CT pin and ground for TLV840C and TLV840M. For a minimum reset delay time the CT pin can be left floating. TLV840N does not offer a programmable delay and offers fixed reset delay timing options: 40 μs, 2 ms, 10 ms, 30 ms, 50 ms, 80 ms, 100 ms, 150 ms, 200 ms.
