Multiple-output PMICs

30 January 2019 Power Electronics / Power Management

The MAX17270, MAX77278, MAX77640/MAX77641 and MAX77680/MAX77681 power-management integrated circuits (PMICs) from Maxim Integrated Products help to reduce the power management footprint for space-constrained products such as wearables, hearables, sensors, smart-home automation hubs and Internet of Things (IoT) devices.

The chips’ control architecture allows a single inductor to serve as the critical energy storage element for multiple, independent DC-rail outputs. In addition, the low quiescent current of the PMICs plays an important role in extending battery life. With the intrinsic buck-boost operation of the PMICs, the power rails can operate over a battery’s entire range.
