nPM1100 EK Evaluation Kit

Performance optimized evaluation kit for the nPM1100 Power Management IC (PMIC)

The nPM1100 Evaluation Kit (EK) is a tool for evaluating the nPM1100 PMIC and evaluate its features for your application. The kit 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.

The EK allows for testing of the nPM1100 PMICs capabilities with existing applications without the need for creating custom hardware. The board supports charging batteries and powering applications with the included headers and battery connectors.

The kit further includes buttons to enter and exit the PMICs ship mode together with DIP-switches for all configuration options such as selecting the charger's termination voltage, regulated output voltage, charge current and VBUS current limit, and fixing the buck regulator mode to PWM mode only for cleaner operation. The kit also includes indicator LEDs for charge and error indication.

There is no programmable logic on the board, hence setup requires no programming for testing with existing hardware applications.

nPM1100 PMIC

Ultra-small form-factor Power Management IC (PMIC) for charging batteries and power delivery

The nPM1100 is a dedicated power management IC (PMIC) with dual-mode configurable buck regulator and integrated battery charger. It is designed as a complementary component to Nordic’s nRF52® Series and nRF53® Series System-on-Chips (SoCs) to ensure reliable power delivery and stable operation, whilst maximizing battery life through high efficiency and low quiescent currents. It can also be used as a generic PMIC device for any other suitable application. Its extremely compact form factor makes it ideal for advanced wearables, connected medical devices, and other size constrained applications. PCB area usage can be as low as 23 mm2.
