High-performance PMICs power next-generation consumer applications

27-07-2018 | Maxim | Semiconductors

With a pair of feature-rich, high-performance and scalable PMICs from Maxim Integrated Products, designers of mobile systems can now maximise performance per watt while increasing system efficiency for computationally intensive deep-learning systems on chip (SoCs), FPGAs and application processors. The MAX77714 and MAX77752 address a broad spectrum of applications ranging from AR/VR, gaming, SSDs, security and IIoT to handheld devices such as cameras and home automation hubs. Architected to deliver numerous benefits, including consuming 40% less power than standard solutions, the PMICs extend battery life while providing the most compact form factor in the market. Computational power is climbing in consumer electronics as creators move toward higher performing application processors and SoCs for a broad range of mobile devices. However, users expect their battery-operated, always-on electronics to run cool and for long periods of time. Creators face the challenge of decreasing board space and component cost of these consumer devices while providing high efficiency, high horsepower and flexible power sequencing. The company's high-performance PMICs give complete power management in single-chip solutions so that application processors can function at peak levels and provide a stable, high-quality user experience. The two PMICs also integrate multiple features, enabling designers to reduce the solution footprint and system cost.
