Micrel Inc. has announced that its two industry-standard voltage supervisor ICs are now available in additional packaging options. According to the company, the MIC809 and the MIC810 are true second source voltage supervisors that now feature smaller SC-70 packaging, along with extremely competitive pricing.

The ICs are suitable for a wide variety of portable equipment, intelligent instruments, mission critical microprocessor power monitoring, printers, computers and controller applications.

The MIC809 and the MIC810 are inexpensive microprocessor supervisory circuits that monitor power supplies in microprocessor-based systems. Several different reset threshold levels are available to accommodate 3V, 3.3V or 5V powered systems. The MIC809 has an active low /RESET output, while the MIC810 offers an active high RESET output. The reset output in both is guaranteed to remain asserted for a minimum of 140ms after VCC has risen above the designated reset threshold level. Both ICs are offered in 3-pin SOT-23 and SC-70 packaging options, Micrel added.

"Micrel's MIC809/810 ICs have been the industry's choice for an extremely diverse number of applications," said Scott Brown, director of Mixed-Signal and RF Products, Micrel. "However, very few IC manufacturers currently offer the smaller, more versatile SC-70 packaging. With the continuing emphasis on reducing board real estate and cost, Micrel is pleased to offer its customers the most competitive pricing and packaging options in the industry," Brown explained.
