Power Management

The board power management uses a Microchip PMIC, MCP16502. This is a complete, cost-effective and highly-efficient power management solution, optimized to provide a single-chip power solution and voltage sequencing for Microchip’s MPU series.

The MCP16502AA features:

The default power channel sequencing is built-in, according to the requirements of the MPU. A dedicated pin (LPM) facilitates the transition to Low-Power modes. The MCP16502 features a low no-load operational quiescent current and draws less than 10 µA in full shutdown. Active discharge resistors are provided on each output. All buck channels support safe start-up into pre-biased outputs.
