Business Wire

MILPITAS, Calif. & LEIDEN, Netherlands--(BUSINESS WIRE)--

IXYS Corporation (IXYS), a manufacturer of power semiconductors and integrated circuits for energy efficiency, power management, and motor control applications, today announced the availability of high precision, low power voltage detectors in ultra-small packages. It is an expansion of IXYS’ product portfolio in the area of power management ICs. With accuracy as high as 0.8 percent and current consumption as low as 0.4 microA, they are well suited for a variety of power efficient mobile and battery powered consumer electronics and medical applications.

These new voltage detectors can detect input voltages ranging from 0.8V to 6V, with 0.1V increments. Either ‘CMOS’ or ‘open drain’ output configuration is available. Additional features include separate ‘SENSE’ input, adjustable or pre-programmed ‘Release Time’, watchdog function, and manual reset.

Manufactured using laser trimming technology, they are ideal for MCU and microprocessor reset circuitry, battery backup circuits, power failure detection, power-on reset circuits, or battery life and voltage monitors.

The new ICs are available in the following ultra-small packages: USP-3 (1.2mm x 1.2mm x 0.6 mm), USP-4 (1.2mm x 1.6mm x 0.6mm), SSOT-24 (2.0mm x 2.1mm x 1.1mm), SOT-25 (2.8mm x 2.9mm x 1.3mm), USP-6C (1.8mm x 2.0mm x 0.6mm), USPN-4 (0.9mm x 1.2mm x 0.38mm), and USPN-4B02 (0.95mm x 0.75mm x 0.38mm). The base part numbers are IXD5118, IXD5120, IXD5121-24, IXD5126, and IXD5127. There are a number of product series/options IXYS customers can choose from.

Additional product information can be obtained by visiting the IXYS website at http://www.ixys.com or by contacting the company directly.
