Highly integrated PMIC delivers complete power solution to reduce design time

13-08-2021 | Renesas | Semiconductors

Renesas Electronics Corporation has released the RAA215300 PMIC optimised to complement its RZ/V2L and RZ/G2L MPUs created for AI-enabled applications. The new high-performance PMIC provides a broad range of features, including nine channels, a built-in charger and a real-time clock. The high integration of the new device lessens design complexity, expediting time-to-market for customers.

The device comprises six buck regulators, three LDOs and a coin cell/supercap charger. It supports DDR4, DDR4L, DDR3 and DDR3L memory with dedicated VREF, VTT and VPP rails. The new PMIC provides four-layer PCBs, which lessen costs. The high level of integration also improves system reliability due to fewer system components required on the board.

The device pairs with the RZ/G2L, RZ/V2L and several other company offerings in a Winning Combination for a Scalable SMARC SoM with AI design. Further to the MPU and PMIC, this Winning Combination incorporates power controllers, a USB PD controller, and a clock device. It provides over 250 of these Winning Combinations that comprise of complementary analog, power, timing devices and embedded processing and give an easy-to-use architecture. They ease the design process and notably decrease design risk for customers in a wide mixture of applications.

“Customers of our RZ/V2L and RZ/G2L MPUs will enjoy the performance advantages and ease-of-design of the RAA215300,” said Andrew Cowell, vice president, Mobility, Infrastructure and IoT Power Business Division at Renesas. “In addition, its high integration and rich feature set makes it an excellent choice for consumer, industrial and SoM applications.”
