Power management IC targets digital SLR cameras

April 20, 2017 //By Julien Happich
Dialog Semiconductor has released a highly integrated power management IC (PMIC) for DSLR, mirrorless cameras, and multi-cell Li-ion battery applications.

The DA6102 features two buck regulators, one buck-boost regulator, one high-current buck controller, and two always-on LDOs. Extremely low RDSon FETs enable industry-leading efficiency as high as 94 percent for buck and buck-boost regulation. This high level of integration and efficiency, combined with a high switching frequency operation of up to 3MHz, minimizes the PCB size and external component count and height, delivering an estimated 50 percent space saving over competing solutions. An I2C interface enables flexibility and easy configuration of the output voltage, switching frequency, power sequencing, and fault protection. Most features are also configurable by OTP for simple output voltage and start-up sequence setup. The device is available in a WLCSP package measuring just 2.97x3.375mm.
