Advanced PMIC with Bypass Switch for Microcontrollers and SSDs

    Key Features

    • 2.8 to 5.5 V input voltage
    • 4 DC/DC buck converters
    • 3 LDOs
    • Highly configurable
    • I2C interface for status reporting & controllability
    • GPIOs

    Qorvo's ACT8870 PMIC is an integrated ActivePMU™ power management unit. It is designed to power a wide range of processors, including Atmel's SAMA5D2, FPGA's, peripherals, microcontrollers and solid-state drive applications. 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.
