  • What considerations must be made regarding the BD48xx series when using a pull-up resistance below the recommended range?
    • Please first check the 'L' level of the IC, which acts as the access point of the reset output. Below the detection voltage the reset outputs 'L', but if the pull-up resistance is too small the output voltage will not be below the 'L' level of the IC access point, preventing reset. Therefore, please refer to actual examples when determining the pull-up resistance.
      The maximum 'L' level of the access point is 0.7V, with a pull-up supply voltage of 3.3V.
      With a reset IC voltage Vdd of 1.5V and an L output current of 0.4mA, the output voltage will be 0.5V max.
      (Please verify the specific value with the electrical characteristic VOL)
      In this case the pull-up resistance can be calculated: 3.3-0.5V/0.4mA=7kΩ. So for a VOUT lower than 0.3V a minimum resistance of 7kΩ is required.
      However, when VDD becomes small the L output current decreases and VOUT increases, making the access point's max. 'L' level of 0.7V insufficient. It is impossible for us to know at what VDD the L level will cease to be output. Therefore, we recommend that the customer determine the final constant value by evaluating their application.
