Product Overview
  • Digital Power Management Controllers

  • Advanced Multi-Channel Digital Power Management Controller - PM8801A

  • PM8801A with Adaptive ASPWM Controlled Technology, by driving up to eight PWM converter channels in sequence, provides a new and effective tool for power-management control of new With up to eight phases, each capable of up to 1MHz operation, the PM8801A can be used to build 8 separate channels of DC/DC converters that provide energy to various types of load with excellent efficiency, low ripples, and with lowest external component count.

    For energy-saving reasons while all the loads is turned off, the PM8801A offers a stand-by mode, where the quiescent current does not exceed 50΅A typically. In this stand-by mode just the stand-by LDOs remain active.

    * 8 separated voltage feedback circuits for each channel
    * Power-on reset functionality
    * Internal watchdog reset
    * Internal crystal oscillator with 32,768 Hz output
    * Un-used channels can be segregated-off from the system without power-consumption
    * Commutation with host-CPU through SPI / I2C serial bus
    * PLCC-84 standard package or (8mm x 8mm) FBGA package with 0.5 ball-pitch (options)


    APPLICATIONS

    * Portable media players and MP3 players
    * Feature phones and smart phones
    * Other portable electronic equipment
    * Eight switching converters
    – Four buck (step-down) converters
    – Two converter available in Low Power mode for high efficiency at low load currents
    – Two boost (step-up) converters
    – One buck-boost (step-up) converter for negative output voltage
    – One constant current boost White LED driver
    – High efficiency (typically 90%+) from 5% to 100% of programmed maximum current in active mode
    – Converters drive external MOSFET(s) directly
    * Switching converters feature all-digital loop control technology
    – Real-time analysis provides optimal power system control and operation
    – Precise supply-to-supply matching and tracking
    – Programmable power-up and -down slew rates
    – Programmable load connection and shedding
    – Smaller inductors and capacitors yield reduced size and cost
    * Three LDOs
    – Three low-noise LDOs with separate pins-out.
    * Input voltage range: 3 to 5.5 Volts
    * Dynamic programming for all PWM cotroller and LDO power rails
    * Power-up supply characteristics can be modified without hardware changes by reprogramming the device’s E2PROM
    * Capable of stand-alone operation using the parameters loaded from the E2PROM at start-up
    – No serial interface with host required
    – Utilize device pins for status / control
    * Integrated system support
    - Real time clock (RTC) with 32,768 Hz clock-pulse output.
    - Watchdog-timer (WDT)
    – Programmable host controller interrupt output
    – Power Good and Power-on-Reset outputs
    * Remote management via I2C, SPI interface to host processor
    * Operates from a low-cost 32,768 KHz crystal or external clock input
    – Provides buffered 32,768 KHz output to internal RTC and the external system
    * Low power consumption
    – 50 ΅A in shutdown mode with RTC enabled
    * PLCC-84 standard package or FBGA package with 0.5 ball-pitch (options)


  • Low-end Digital Power Management Controller - PM8801L


  • PM8801L with Adaptive ASPWM Controlled Technology, by driving up to eight PWM converter channels in sequence, provides a new and effective tool for power-management control of new generations of portable devices such as: smartphones, PDAs, MP4-players … This controller familly are designed to offer advanced specifications which are fully adapted to common and particular demands from portable device designers.
