Seiko Instruments Inc. announced the S-1910x series voltage detector with
SENSE pin for automotive use that enhances reliability in voltage monitoring
and CPU reset functions for safer system operation. The S-1910x series voltage
detectors monitor a supply voltage and send reset signals if the supply
voltage drops below the set point, allowing equipment and devices to recover
safely. An added SENSE pin is featured which allows stable output even when
the SENSE pin voltage drops to 0V. The innovative S-1910x series is the
perfect match for voltage monitoring and CPU reset functions needed in
automotive entertainment systems, audio systems, navigation systems and
information displays.

The S-1910x series was specifically developed to meet the demanding high
quality requirements for automotive use, and will be AEC-Q100 certified
(Automotive Electronics Council reliability stress test). The S-1910x series
has a wide operating voltage range from 0.95V to 10V, broad operating
temperature range from -40 to 105 degrees C, low current consumption of 500nA,
and a detection voltage range 1.2V to 5.0V in 0.1V steps. Further detection
voltages can be set by the customer through the use of a resistance divider or
diode. The S-1910x has options available with a delay circuit or without a
delay circuit, and comes in the lead-free and halogen-free SOT-23-5 package.

SII has a well-established and recognized track record for providing reliable
serial EEPROMs to automotive manufacturers and holds the No.1 market share in
Japan. SII continues to improve device reliability and to expand product
line-up for automotive applications.

Detailed information:
With delay circuit - S-19104/19106 Series
Without delay circuit - S-19102/19108 Series
