MAX34461 PMBus 16-Channel Voltage Monitor and Sequencer

Maxim's MAX34461 provides unparalleled sequencing, monitoring, and "Black Box" fault logging of up to 16 POL power supplies

Image of Maxim Integrated's MAX34461 PMBus 16-Channel Voltage Monitor and SequencerMaxim Integrated's MAX34461 is a system monitor, capable of managing up to 16 power supplies. The power-supply manager monitors the power-supply output voltages and constantly checks for user-programmable overvoltage and undervoltage thresholds. If a fault is detected, the device automatically shuts down the system in an orderly fashion. The device can sequence the supplies in any order at both power-up and power-down. With the addition of external current DACs, the device has the ability to close-loop margin the power-supply output voltages up or down to a user-programmable level. The device contains an internal temperature sensor and can support up to four external remote temperature sensors. Once configured, the device can operate autonomously without any host intervention.

Features Applications
  • Supports up to five temperature sensors (one internal/four remote)
  • Expandable channel operation with parallel devices
  • Up to 16 GPOs
  • No external clocking required
  • 3.0 V to 3.6 V supply voltage
  • Base stations
  • Network switches/routers
  • Servers
  • Smart grid network systems
