General Description The MAX1232 microprocessor (μP) supervisory circuit provides μP housekeeping and power-supply supervision functions while consuming only 1/10th the power of the DS1232. The MAX1232 enhances circuit reliability in μP systems by monitoring the power supply, monitoring the software execution, and providing a debounced manual reset input. The MAX1232 is a plug-in upgrade of the Dallas DS1232. A reset pulse of at least 250ms duration is supplied on power-up, power-down, and low-voltage brownout con- ditions (5% or 10% supply tolerances can be selected digitally). Also featured is a debounced manual reset input that forces the reset outputs to their active states for a minimum of 250ms. A digitally programmable watch- dog timer monitors software execution and can be pro- grammed for timeout settings of 150ms, 600ms, or 1.2s. The MAX1232 requires no external components.

Detailed Description Power Monitor A voltage detector monitors VCC and holds the reset outputs (RST and RST) in their active states whenever VCC is below the selected 5% or 10% tolerance (4.62V or 4.37V, typically). To select the 5% level, connect TOL to ground. To select the 10% level, connect TOL to VCC. The reset outputs will remain in their active states until VCC has been continuously in-tolerance for a minimum of 250ms (the reset active time) to allow the power supply and μP to stabilize. The RST output both sinks and sources current, while the RST output, an open-drain MOSFET, sinks current only and must be pulled high. Pushbutton Reset Input The MAX1232’s debounced manual reset input (PBRST) manually forces the reset outputs into their active states. The reset outputs go active after PBRST has been held low for a time tPBD, the pushbutton reset delay time. The reset outputs remain in their active states for a minimum of 250ms after PBRST rises above VIH (Figure 3). A mechanical pushbutton or an active logic signal can drive the PBRST input. The debounced input ignores input pulses less than 1ms and is guaranteed to recog- nize pulses of 20ms or greater. The PBRST input has an internal pullup to VCC of about 100μA; therefore, an external pullup resistor is not necessary. Watchdog Timer The microprocessor drives the ST input with an input/ output (I/O) line. The microprocessor must toggle the ST input within a set period (as determined by TD) to verify proper software execution. If a hardware or software fail- ure keeps ST from toggling within the minimum timeout period—ST is activated only by falling edges (a high-to- low transition)—the MAX1232 reset outputs are forced to their active states for 250ms (Figure 2). This typically initi- ates the microprocessor’s power-up routine. If the inter- ruption continues, new reset pulses are generated each timeout period until ST is strobed. The timeout period is determined by the TD input connection. This timeout peri- od is typically 150ms with TD connected to GND, 600ms with TD floating, or 1200ms with TD connected to VCC. The software routine that strobes ST is critical. The code must be in a section of software that executes frequently enough so the time between toggles is less than the watchdog timeout period. One common technique con- trols the microprocessor I/O line from two sections of the program. The software might set the I/O line high while operating in the foreground mode, and set it low while in the background or interrupt mode. If both modes do not execute correctly, the watchdog timer issues reset pulses. Figure 1. Pushbutton Reset Figure 2.
