BATTERY MONITOR -40 TO 85DEG C
The MAX6775–MAX6781 low-power, 1%-accurate bat- tery monitors are available in the ultra-small µDFN package (1.0mm x 1.5mm) and SC70 packages. These low-power devices are ideal for monitoring single lithi- um-ion (Li+) cells, or multicell alkaline/NiCd/NiMH power sources. These devices offer single (MAX6775/ MAX6776/MAX6777/MAX6778) or dual (MAX6779/ MAX6780/MAX6781) low-battery outputs and feature fixed or resistor-adjustable hysteresis. Hysteresis elimi- nates the output chatter sometimes associated with bat- tery voltage monitors, usually due to input-voltage noise or battery terminal voltage recovery after load removal. These devices are available in several versions: with single- or dual-voltage monitors, and with fixed or adjustable hysteresis. The MAX6775/MAX6776 offer a single battery monitor and factory-set hysteresis of 0.5%, 5%, or 10%. The MAX6779/MAX6780/MAX6781 have two battery monitors in a single package and fac- tory-set hysteresis of 0.5%, 5%, or 10%. The MAX6777/ MAX6778 offer a single battery monitor with external inputs for the rising and falling thresholds, allowing external hysteresis control. For convenient interface with system power circuitry or microprocessors, both open-drain and push-pull out- puts are available. The single-channel devices are available with open-drain or push-pull outputs. The dual-channel devices are available with both outputs open-drain, both outputs push-pull, or one of each (see the Selector Guide). This family of devices is offered in small 5-pin SC70 and ultra-small 6-pin µDFN packages, and is fully specified over the -40°C to +85°C extended temperature range.
