Why does Jetson use power monitor IC? (I was looking at OEM design guide.)
I think it is easier to detect power good signals than design the circuits for power monitoring if the purpose is to detect power failure.
But I also know that the IC generally provides the following benefits:
- Shutdown more properly during voltage drop
- Alert to system when voltage drop or current load increases
- Control fan and current safely when current load increases
- Enable the state of current control when debugging
Are there other reason for using the IC?
Thank you for your time.
