Ultra-Low IQ PMIC Powers iMX8M Nano for Delivering High Performance in Embedded Artists Industrial Control Boards
ROHM Semiconductors has announced that Embedded Artists is using the BD71847AMWV, a highly integrated PMIC from ROHM along with NXP’s i.MX 8M Nano processor on its iMX8M Nano uCOM board. Featuring the i.MX 8M Nano processor with Quad-core ARM Cortex-A53 and Cortex-M7 running at up to 1.5GHz/750MHz, the uCOM board delivers a robust and cost-effective solution for industrial applications.
The 45mm x 42mm 13,800 DMIPS high performance board includes 1 GByte DDR4 2400 MT/s; 16-bit databus; 8 GByte eMMC on-board Flash; MIPI-DSI graphical output and MIPI-CSI camera input; USB2.0, Gigabit Ethernet, and other interfaces; and an optional Murata 1MW Wi-Fi/BT module that supports 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac and BT/BLE 5.0.
Along with power rails, DVFS support, and programmable sequencer the BM71847MWV also integrates a programmable power button, 32kHz crystal driver and buffered output clock, extensive fault detection, and protection circuitry. These features and factors help reduce development time, decrease risk, and simplify application design.
