What is a Voltage Supervisor?
A voltage supervisor monitors the supply voltage in embedded circuits and microcontroller systems for abnormal voltage conditions. In the case an abnormal condition is detected, the supervisory circuit resets the controller and keeps it in that state as long as that condition persists.
Types of Voltage Supervisors
There are several different kinds of voltage supervisors. At Future Electronics we stock many of the most common types categorized by Number of Outputs, Reset Timeout, Maximum Supply Voltage, Threshold Voltage and Packaging Type. The parametric filters on our website can help refine your search results depending on the required specifications.
The most common sizes for Maximum Supply Voltage are 5.5 V and 10 V. We also carry voltage supervisors with Maximum Supply Voltage up to 13.3 kV. Reset Timeout can be between 1.5 µs and 1.68 s, with 140 ms and 150 ms being the most common.
