Power management IC handles power for car audio systems

The power management IC (PMIC) incorporates a multi-rail microcontroller power supply that retains power during minor interruptions in the battery supply. The device also includes multiple variable power supplies for flexibility, as well as a fixed power supply.


Along with a two-channel high-side switch, the IC also incorporates ACC voltage detection, accessory power voltage detection and microcontroller output voltage detection, all with variable thresholds.


As the IC is configured with series regulators, users can design a system without EMI concerns, assures the company.


The PMIC is housed in a P-HSSOP36-1116-0.65 package. Sample shipments are available now with mass production scheduled for this month.
