Power Management ICs

Designed to reduce power consumption

Nordic Semiconductor leverages its extensive experience in ultra-low power wireless technology to develop power management ICs, enabling industry-leading low power wireless solutions.

 Why choose Nordic´s power management ICs?

icon of kits on power management ic page on intergrated circuits HIGH INTEGRATION: Combining valuable system and power management features with essential PMIC functions in a compact package, cuts board space, complexity and bill of materials.
Firmware icon on power management ic page on intergrated circuits SEAMLESS DEVELOPMENT: In a perfect world, a hardware engineer wouldn’t need to write code and a software engineer wouldn’t have to read the datasheet. The PC application, nPM PowerUP creates that world.

Maximum energy utilization

A chain is no stronger than its weakest link. A single-vendor system makes your product better and your life easier. 

Components that are designed to work together, play better together and you don’t have to deal with several support teams from competing suppliers. Even if your product contains no other Nordic components, our Power Management ICs (PMICs) still give you the best power management possible.

Ultra-Low Power Wireless – from Battery to Antenna

Nordic’s PMICs are built on the experience of integrating power management into our SoCs, resulting in a low power wireless solution – from battery to antenna. By offering dedicated PMICs, we put you in control of the entire energy path and enable you to build products with the longest possible battery life and the highest reliability.

Great things come in small packages

Customers’ demands for features are constantly growing – as is the complexity of your products. We work hard on integrating this complexity, so you don’t have to.
Nordic’s PMICs integrate essential power management features like highly efficient power regulation, battery charging and fuel gauge, load switches, GPIOs and LED drivers, with advanced system management features like hard reset, system level watchdog, power loss warning and recovery from failed boot.
