Multiple Channel DC-DC Power Management IC
The 34704 is a multi-channel Power Management IC (PMIC) used to address power management needs for various multimedia application microprocessors. Its ability to provide either 5 or 8 independent output voltages with a single input power supply (2.7 and 5.5V) together with its high efficiency, make it ideal for portable devices powered up by Li-Ion/polymer batteries or for USB powered devices as well.
The 34704 is housed in a 7x7mm, Pb-free, QFN56 and is capable of operating at a switching frequency of up to 2MHz. This makes it possible to reduce external component size and to implement full space efficient power management solutions.
•8 DC/DC (34704A) or 5 DC/DC (34704B) switching regulators with up to ±2% output voltage accuracy
•Dynamic voltage scaling on all regulators.
•Selectable voltage mode control or current mode control on REG8
•Output under-voltage and over-voltage detection for each regulator
•Over-current limit detection and short-circuit protection for each regulator
•Thermal limit detection for each regulator, except REG7
•Integrated compensation for REG1, REG3, REG6, and REG8
•5.0μA maximum shutdown current (All regulators are off, 5.5V VIN)
•True cutoff on all of the boost and buck-boost regulators
•Pb-free packaging designated by suffix code EP
This Evaluation Board demonstrates the capability of the MC34704A as a multi-channel power management IC (PMIC) meant to address power management needs for various multimedia application microprocessors. It provides 8 independent voltages through a terminal block connector for an easier out-of-the-box evaluation. A single terminal block connector for input power supply allows the user to supply the board with either a external DC power supply or a Li-Ion battery to fully evaluate the performance accordingly.
The KIT34704AEPEVBE has the ability to program the switching frequency of regulators 1 through 5 as well as the default soft start timing for all regulators during startup by changing few external components. All other features can be programmed via I2C communication using a standard 100mils 4-pin header to communicate with either the USB-I2C bridge included in this package or with any other I2C communication device preferred by the user.
