Voltage supervisor fundamentals and design considerations

Voltage supervisors increase the system reliability and robustness by ensuring that power rails are active only during stable power supply. This is achieved through functions such as: precise voltage monitoring, over-voltage protection, power failure indicator, processor monitoring, power sequencing, battery backup, and reset latching.

 In this series, you will learn about the: 

  • Basic of voltage supervisor functionality, the need for voltage supervisors and the key specifications
  • Some examples of System design challenges with case studies and how to solve them with voltage supervisors

1. Overview of supply voltage supervisors

This video will cover the first section of the training module that provides an overview of supply voltage supervisors. We will start with a brief introduction to Supply Voltage Supervisors. Next, we will present some system level design challenges that can be solved using the Supply Voltage Supervisors and end the presentation with information on finding the right collateral and resources for further help.

2. Applications of voltage supervisors in grid infrastructure

Leakage current detection is necessary in most of the industrial and residential breakers as well as in many EEQ such as EV chargers, PV inverters etc. In this course we’ll deep dive into circuit breakers and review TIDA-010041 reference design that provides an easy and efficient method of detecting residual current or ground fault by leveraging voltage supervisor IC. This solution also finds application in over-voltage detection in binary input module EEQ. In addition, this also includes power sequencing using supply voltage supervisors.
