element14 has broadened its portfolio of Nordic Semiconductor products to include the industry’s most compact power management solution, the nPM1100 Power Management IC (PMIC) and evaluation kit.
Nordic’s first power management product is now available to buy at element14. Typical applications for the nPM1100 include wearable electronics, remote controls, personal medical devices and smart home sensors.
Lee Turner, Global Head of Semiconductors and Single Board Computing, Farnell and element14 said: “element14 partners with the world’s leading innovators in new product development and manufacturing to ensure cutting-edge power management technology is available to our global customer base, and we are pleased to expand our PMIC range with the latest products from Nordic Semiconductor. The new-to-market nPM1100 is an ideal solution to help our customers reduce energy consumption in their designs. The ability to charge small batteries and extend battery life while providing efficient power management within small, space-constrained applications, such as wearables and connected medical devices, is now of critical importance.”
The Nordic Semiconductor nPM1100 can be used as a generic PMIC for any application using rechargeable Li-ion/Li-Po batteries. Its compact form factor, with PCB space requirements as low as 23 mm², makes it ideal for advanced wearables, connected medical devices and other space-constrained applications. The nPM1100 requires no configuration software to operate as all settings are pin configurable.
Nordic Semiconductor nPM1100 products now at element14 include:
- nPM1100-CAAA,ultra-small form factor dedicated power management IC (PMIC) with a highly efficient dual-mode configurable buck regulator and integrated battery charger.
- nPM1100 Evaluation Kitrequires no software to operate and is performance optimized for the PMIC with electrical connectors and physical interfaces for operation. It features switches for all selectable settings, buttons to enter and exit ship mode and connectors for batteries, USB and headers for all pins on the PMIC. Provides functional testing without the need for creating custom hardware.
element14 offers an extensive range of products in its comprehensive semiconductor portfolio to support design engineers. Customers also have free access to online resources, datasheets, application notes, videos, webinars and 24/5 technical support.
