Embedded World 2014 – Freescale Semiconductor has announced the addition of the MMPF0200 device to its PF Series of highly programmable power management ICs (PMICs). Optimized to work seamlessly in systems based on Freescale’s i.MX 6Solo, i.MX 6SoloLite and i.MX 6DualLite applications processors, the MMPF0200 has been designed for configurability and quick-turn programmability for power-sensitive platforms including portable medical devices, IP headphones, home security systems, IPTV controllers, tablets and home energy management solutions. The MMPF0200 is also designed to be Auto AEC-Q100 Grade 3 compliant for automotive applications such as infotainment systems.
The MMPF0200 enables customers to quickly and easily program the device to support a range of system supply requirements, as well as meet the needs of rapidly changing, volatile and emerging markets. The device’s fully configurable architecture supports numerous outputs with various current ratings and programmable voltages, allowing it to work as a system-level power solution supporting the core processor, memory and peripherals. This reduces system design complexity, lowers the overall bill of materials and speeds time to market.
The MMPF0200 is part of Freescale’s PF Series family, which also features the MMPF0100. While the MMPF0100 is targeted for systems with higher degrees of complexity such as feature-rich smart mobile devices and automotive infotainment systems, it is also engineered to complement the extreme low-power end of the i.MX 6 product family, such as the i.MX 6SoloLite, i.MX 6Solo and i.MX 6DualLite SoCs. The MMPF0200 works seamlessly with i.MX 6 technology for faster design cycles and optimized use of onboard i.MX 6 resources, features and IP.
Freescale will demonstrate several solutions, including a demonstration of the MMPF0200 power management solution, in the i.MX 6 applications processors area, at hall 4A, booth 210 at Embedded World 2014 in Nuremberg, Germany, February 25-27.
