Santa Clara, Calif. Catalyst Semiconductor, Inc. has expanded its supervisor product line with the addition of three new devices. The CAT705, CAT706 and CAT813 voltage supervisors monitor the power supply (Vcc) status of a microprocessor, microcontroller, ASIC or other system processor.
The CAT706 offers a threshold voltage of 4.40 V, while the CAT705 and CAT813 devices provide a threshold voltage of 4.65 V. In addition to a manual reset and watchdog timer included on all three devices, the CAT813 offers an active-high reset function and the CAT705 and CAT706 offer an active-low reset function.
All three devices are available in 8-lead SOIC and 8-lead MSOP packages. They are also pin-for-pin compatible with MAX705, MAX706 and MAX813L ICs.
Pricing: $0.54 each in quantities of 10,000.
Availability: Samples of the CAT706 and CAT813 are available now; samples of the CAT705 will be available soon. Projected lead time for production quantities is currently six to eight weeks ARO.
