Power supply IC (LDOs, converters, PMICs) power-good outputs often have weak open-drain drivers. This fact combined with the common practice of physically separating a supply from the the digital and analog processing subsystems can result in very long traces. Long traces result in large parasitic capacitances and can negatively affect signal integrity. By adding a strong push-pull CMOS driver, the signal is improved. At the same time, signals can be combined through simple logic to reduce the number of inputs required.
