Designers can further reduce power consumption and solution size, while improving measurement accuracy, with three new industry-leading analog products from Maxim Integrated Products, Inc. (NASDAQ: MXIM). The MAX6078A voltage reference IC, the MAX16155 nanoPower supervisor and the MAX16160 voltage monitor and reset IC achieve best-in-class performance for cloud infrastructure, IoT, intelligence-at-the-edge, on-device AI, as well as smart and emerging applications in consumer, communications, industrial and medical markets.

As designers develop new and next-generation systems for greater performance, smaller size and innovative capabilities, they demand reliable analog solutions to provide essential performance functions such as precision measurement and reliable protection. Maxim leverages world-class circuit design expertise and unique advanced process technology to provide high-quality building block ICs that support system advances in multiple applications.

Maxim has added three new solutions to its Essential Analog portfolio of high-performance, single-function analog ICs which provide efficient power, precision measurement, rugged connectivity and reliable protection.

Maxim’s New Solutions in Essential Analog Portfolio:

  • MAX6078A: Precision Voltage Reference Delivers Industrial Level Accuracy on a Tight Battery Power Budget The MAX6078A features ±0.04 percent initial accuracy, 20 percent more accurate than similar competitive devices. At 15µA quiescent current, the MAX6078A opens the potential for precision measurements on battery-powered and energy-harvesting systems. It operates at 6.6x less current than the closest competitive parts and, at 1.458mm x 1.288mm, is 58 percent smaller than competing solutions.

  • MAX16155: Industry’s Lowest Power nanoPower Supervisor The MAX16155 consumes just 400nA typical, or only 4 percent of the supply current that competitive solutions require, providing reliable system protection for virtually no power. It ensures portable, low-power devices operate safely in the event of a power failure or code error by monitoring a system rail for undervoltage fault and keeping the system in reset when it senses the fault along with a watchdog timer. The IC comes in a tiny, 6-pin SOT23 package.

  • MAX16160: New 4-Channel Voltage Monitor and Reset IC Without VCC Rail Power-Up Requirement The MAX16160 is the only 4-channel voltage monitor and reset IC that uniquely asserts reset low without requiring VCC rail if any of the rails is above 1V. It features the industry’s most reliable start-up and continuous operation of multi-supply systems by asserting output low. This “no-power power-up” eliminates unknown system states and significantly reduces the burden on design engineers to accurately sequence their power rail startup. With a voltage monitoring accuracy of ±1 percent for all inputs, it is up to 50 percent more accurate than competitive offerings (commonly ±1.50 percent for all inputs). Its 6-bump WLP (1.408mm x 0.848mm) is 85 percent smaller than the closest competitor.
