The ACT86600 PMIC is an integrated ActivePMU power management unit. It is highly flexible and can be reconfigured via I2C for multiple applications without the need for PCB changes. The low external component count and high configurability significantly speeds time to market. Examples of configurable options include output voltage, startup time, slew rate, system level sequencing, switching frequency, sleep modes, operating modes etc.
The core of the device includes 4 high power DC/DC step down converters, a lower power step down converter and a buck-boost converter. Each regulator can be configured for a wide range of output voltages through the I2C interface.
The ACT86600 is a high voltage PMIC that is optimized for single stage voltage conversion from 12V input power sources. It operates with a 2.7V to 14.4V input voltage and can withstand 16V input voltage surges. The four high current regulators can be configured as single phase outputs, or can be paralleled for up to 12A dual phase with outputs.
The ACT86600 PMIC is available in a 6 x 6 mm 48 pin QFN package.

The Evaluation Tool Users Guide describes the characteristics and operation of the Qorvo ACT86600EVK1-101 evaluation kit (EVK). It provides setup and operation instructions, schematic, layout, BOM, and test data.
To communicate with the EVK a USB Dongle and a Graphical User Interface (GUI) is provided.
This EVK demonstrates the ACT86600 ActivePMU power management IC.
The ACT86600 EVK GUI allows the user to communicate with the ACT86600EVK1-101 Evaluation Tool via I2C. This allows the user to modify the IC's internal registers and optimize its functionality. The Graphical User Interface (GUI) is packaged in a ZIP file that includes the software, device drivers, and a GUI User's Guide.
