MAX696 Datasheet – Processor Supervisor, 16 Pin – Maxim

Part Number: MAX696

Function: Microprocessor Supervisory Circuits

Package: DIP 16 Pin type

Manufacturer: Maxim Integrated


MAX696 datasheet



The MAX696 / MAX697 supervisory circuits reduce the complexity and number of components required for power-supply monitoring and battery-control functions in microprocessor (µP) systems.

These include µP reset and backup-battery switchover, watchdog timer, CMOS
RAM write protection, and power-failure warning. The device significantly improve system reliability and accuracy compared to that obtained with separate ICs or discrete components.

The ICs are supplied in 16-pin packages and perform six functions:


1. Adjustable Low-Line Monitor and Power-Down Reset

2. Power-OK/Reset Time Delay

3. Watchdog Timer – 100ms, 1.6s, or Adjustable

4. Minimum Component Count

5. 1μA Standby Current

6. Battery-Backup Power Switching (MAX696)

7. On-Board Gating of Chip-Enable Signals (MAX697)

8. Separate Monitor for Power-Fail or Low-Battery Warning
