Preliminary Technical Data
INTERNAL POWER ON RESET CIRCUIT
Figure 7 Typical Power up Sequence where AVDD is Powered before DVDD
Figure 6 Internal Power on Reset Circuit Schematic
The WM8978 includes an internal Power-On-Reset Circuit (POR), as shown in Figure 6, which is
used reset the digital logic into a default state after power up. The POR circuit is powered from
AVDD and monitors DVDD. It asserts PORB low if AVDD or DVDD is below a minimum threshold.
the minimum threshold, V
low and the chip is held in reset. In this condition, all writes to the control interface are ignored.
AVDD will then ramp up to full supply level. Next DVDD rises to V
and all registers are in their default state and writes to the control interface may take place.
On power down, where AVDD falls first, PORB is asserted low whenever AVDD drops below the
minimum threshold V
Figure 7 shows a typical power-up sequence where AVDD comes up first. When AVDD goes above
, there is enough voltage for the circuit to guarantee PORB is asserted
