Nordic Semiconductor launches tiny footprint, ultra low IQ power management IC for nRF52/nRF53 Series SoCs and other compatible products
salmanfaris last edited by
nPM1100 PMIC is Nordic’s first power management product and combines a USB compatible Li-ion/Li-Po battery charger and highly efficient DC/DC buck regulator in a compact WLCSP package for space-constrained applications
Ultra-low quiescent current
The nPM1100 features an ultra-low quiescent current (IQ) of 700nA (Typ.) which can be further reduced to 470 nA in “ship mode”.
Ship mode also disables power output – removing the need for an external power switch and ensuring minimum battery lifetime impact on products in transit. The power management solution takes up as little as 23 mm2 of PCB area, including passive components (rising to 27mm2 when optimized for performance) - much less than comparable competitive products.
The new PMIC is accompanied by the ‘nPM1100 Evaluation Kit’. The Evaluation Kit (EK) features switches for all selectable settings, buttons to enter and exit ship mode and connectors for batteries, USB and headers for all pins on the PMIC. The headers allow for overriding switches if SW control of configuration is required. The EK allows for testing of the nPM1100 PMIC’s capabilities with existing applications without the need for creating custom hardware
