TC1232 is a fully-integrated processor supervisor. It provides three important functions to safeguard processor sanity: precision power on/off reset control, watchdog timer and external reset override. On power-up, the TC1232 holds the processor in the reset state for a minimum of 250msec after VCC is within tolerance to ensure a stable system start-up. Microprocessor sanity is monitored by the on-board watchdog circuit. The microprocessor must provide a periodic low-going signal on the ST input. Should the processor fail to supply this signal within the selected time-out period (150msec, 600msec or 1200msec), an out-of-control processor is indicated and the TC1232 issues a processor reset as a result. The outputs of the TC1232 are immediately driven active when the PB input is brought low by an external push-button switch or other electronic signal. When connected to a push-button switch, the TC1232 provides contact debounce. The TC1232 is packaged in a space-saving 8-pin plastic DIP or SOIC package and requires no external components.
This is a blank PCB that allows the operation of Microchip Technology’s 8-pin devices to be easily evaluated. Each device pin is connected to a pull-up resistor, a pull-down resistor, an in-line resistor, and a loading capacitor. The PCB pads allow through hole or surface mount connectors to be installed to ease connection to the board. Additional passive component footprints are on the...
