It is often necessary in complex designs to provide a sequence of reset pulses to different parts of a circuit to ensure the whole design functions reliably. The DS1830 from Maxim (www.maxim-ic.com) provides three sequenced open-drain reset outputs. This chip is designed for 5 V systems but a 3.3 V version (DS1830A) is also available. Both are offered in a range of package outlines including DIP, SO and µSOP.
