STMicroelectronics STM65xx Smart-Reset Chip Family

STMicroelectronics introduced the STM6502, STM6503, STM6504, and STM6505 smart-reset chips. The STM65xx family of smart-reset Integrated Circuits (IC) enables the system to be restarted safely without removing the battery or finding a tool to push the reset button, usually hidden behind a hole in the casing. ST’s smart reset solution simplifies design, reduces part count, and saves on overall system cost while improving the industrial design. The STM65xx is in mass production now and is priced at $0.53 for 10,000 units.
