This video will highlight the voltage supervisor and explain what a voltage supervisor is, how a voltage supervisors works, and go over some of the use cases of supervisors. People tend to confuse voltage supervisors with voltage detectors, voltage monitors, and reset ICs; however, these are all the same devices. Supervisors are most commonly used to monitor the voltage supply rail of DC/DC converters, LDOs, and MCU's/Processors. We will also highlight how a supervisor works in order to protect your subsystem from brownout.
