Multiple Input Switch Monitor LSI
Multiple Input Switch Monitor ICs that detect the opening and closing of mechanical switches. Once it senses a change in the status of a switch, it sends an interrupt signal to the MCU via a serial peripheral interface (SPI). In intermittent monitoring, the switch status is monitored at regular time intervals, allowing the IC to operate with low power consumption. Also, operation with reduced noise can be achieved by enabling uniform sequential monitoring of all switches or sequential monitoring by power supply system.
