Renesas Electronics Corporation introduced the RAA215300 PMIC (Power Management IC) optimized to complement Renesas' RZ/V2L and RZ/G2L microprocessors (MPUs) designed for AI-enabled applications.

Included in the PMIC are nine channels, a built-in charger, and a real-time clock.

The high integration of the device speeds up the time to market.

The RAA215300 pairs with microprocessors for a scalable SMARC (Smart Mobility ARChitecture) System-on-Module with AI design.

According to the company, the key features of the RAA215300 are:

  • Optimized for Renesas RZ/V2L and RZ/G2L, LC, UL MPUs
  • Nine high-performance power channels
  • Built-in power sequencer and support for external DC/DC regulator on/off controls
  • Supports multiple DDR memories
  • Built-in real-time clock and coin cell battery / super cap charger
  • Supports -40°C to 105°C ambient temperature for industrial applications
  • Supports single cell Li-Ion battery applications
  • Improves system power efficiency with VTT buck regulator instead of LDO
  • Supports multiple processors and SoCs
  • Spread Spectrum to reduce EMI for RF applications
  • Ultrasonic Mode to eliminate audible noise coupling into microphones or speakers
  • Built-in watch dog timer for secure system power up before any software is running
  • Fully configurable with built-in EEPROM
