20-02-2015 | Mouser Electronics | Power

Aimed at applications such as automotive ECU's and systems, Mouser now stocks the STMicroelectronics L99PM72GXP advanced power management system IC. It device provides electronic control units with enhanced system power supply functionality including various standby modes as well as LIN and HS CAN physical communication layers. The device contains two low drop voltage regulators to supply the system microcontroller and external peripheral loads such as sensors and provides enhanced system standby functionality with programmable local and remote wake up capability. In addition, five high-side drivers, two low-side drivers and two operational amplifiers increase the system integration level. The ST standard SPI Interface (3.0) allows control and diagnosis of the device and enables generic software development.
