On power up, the interaction of the RSTN pin and power on ramp could result in digital circuits not being set correctly. The device should not be enabled until the power on ramp has settled to minimum recommended supply voltage or higher to ensure a correct power on reset of the digital circuitry. If RSTN cannot be held low by microcontroller or other circuitry until the power on ramp has settled, then an external capacitor from the RSTN pin to GND is required to hold the device in the low power reset state.
The RC time constant should be larger than five times of the power on ramp time (0 to VCC). With a typical internal pullup resistance of 500 kΩ, the recommended minimum external capacitance is calculated as:
