Qorvo introduces multi-time programmable family of PMICs

09 December 2020

Qorvo has rolled out a multi-time programmable family of power management ICs (PMICs) designed for multiple applications including SSD cards, computer vision, low-power mobile uses, home control and voice assisted devices and more.

The ACT88327/8/9/1 constant-on-time (COT) PMIC family accelerates time to market and can be used to support different end products by swapping the PMIC configuration without special software or firmware. The devices can also be debugged or changed in real time without external components, Qorvo said.

The PMICs integrate five voltage rails, a sequencer and seven configurable general purpose I/Os in a 2.18 x 2.58 mm 30-ball WLCSP package. Each PMIC in the series includes three DC/DC step down converters using integrated power FETs and two low-dropout regulators (LDOs).

The multiple GPIOs can be configured for different features and purposes like interrupt, rest, external enable, external PG, regulator ON/OFF, DVS, VID, sleep/deep sleep modes, power recycle and push button. Other configurable options include startup time, slew rate, system-level sequencing, switching frequency, sleep modes and operating modes.
