Power Management Integrated Circuits (PMICs) offer a way to manage the power requirements of your system,often extending battery life, reducing the need for bigger, higher capacity batteries, and ultimately reducing the size of the device. When you have a need for low power circuit design, turning to an expert in power management ICs can make all the difference in how portable and functional your product will be. Particularly for battery-operated devices that need a smaller footprint, power management integrated circuits can make your design sleek and streamlined.
Just a few of the many benefits of power management IC design include reduced time to market and cost, board size constraints, better reliability, and more functional design. The design effort when using a fully integrated power management IC is less than other solutions, and the total footprint of a power management integrated circuit could save you greater than 50% of required space for a significantly smaller platform. Also power management integrated circuits can offer better performance on issues like output noise and emissions.
Cactus Semiconductor’s low-power mixed-signal ASICs make use of power management circuits to meet application requirements. These circuits and our PMIC design expertise have been used to develop standalone products and IP blocks for end users and Integrated Device Manufacturers (IDMs).
