Qorvo adds to programmable PMICs

The product’s flexibility, small form factor and low quiescent current (LQC) address power, performance and size challenges in applications such as enterprise solid-state drives (SSDs), virtual reality headsets, security and action cameras, and AI processors.

The Qorvo ACT88760 PMIC accelerates time to market for both enterprise and battery-powered consumer applications by enabling designers to change configurations multiple times without special software or firmware.

Flexibility is achieved with 13 integrated rails, a sequencer and 10 General Purpose IOs (GPIOs) that can be configured for different features.

The device also includes seven DC/DC step down converters using integrated power FETs, and six low-dropout regulators (LDOs).

All are  configurable via the I2C interface. Manufacturers can debug designs and change settings in real time without changing external components.
