The MAX38888 backup power regulator is the first member of the Continua family of backup power management regulators. The IC is capable of charging/discharging a backup supercapacitor or capacitor bank to deliver continuous power to critical systems when the main power is off. It also has the industry’s highest efficiency at 95%. This part is an excellent solution for portable applications.
The MAX16141 36V ORing FET controller has a voltage and current circuit breaker on board. It monitors over-voltage, under-voltage, over-current, reverse-current, and over-temperature faults in automotive power designs for infotainment and ADAS. It also has the industry’s best 0.3 µs response.
