The ACT8865 is a complete, cost-effective, highly-efficient ActivePMU™ power management solution, optimized for the unique power, voltage-sequencing, and control requirements of the Atmel SAMA5 and SAM9 based eMPU series processors. It is ideal for a wide range of high performance portable handheld applications such as smartwatches, wearables, POS terminals, tablet PCs, human-machine interfaces, control panels, smart grid infrastructures, network gateways, M2M systems, 2D barcode scanners, barcode printers, machine vision equipment, as well as home and commercial building automation, medical devices and white goods.
This device features three step-down DC/DC converters and four low-noise, low-dropout linear (LDO) regulators.
The three DC/DC converters utilize a high-efficiency, fixed-frequency (2MHz), current-mode PWM control architecture that requires a minimum number of external components. Two DC/DCs are capable of supplying up to 1150mA of output current, while the third supports up to 1300mA. All four LDO regulators are high-performance, low-noise, regulators that supply up to 320mA.

|Integrated sequencing||Easy system level design with programmable Reset and Power
Good functions allows for flexible sequencing options
|Seamless sequencing||With external supplies via integrated GPIOs and Power Good signals|
|Highly configurable||Via a I2C uP interface for status reporting and controlling|
This document describes the characteristic and operation of the Active Semi ACT8865EVK1-305 evaluation kit (EVK). It provides setup and operation instructions, schematic, layout, BOM, and test data. This EVK demonstrates the ACT8865QI305 ActivePMU power management IC. Other ACT8865QIxxx options can be evaluated on this EVK by replacing the IC and any other necessary components.
