- Vin = 2.8V to 5.5V
- 4 DCDC Buck Converter
- Three LDOs
- Highly configurable
- I²C interface for status reporting & controllability
The ACT8870 PMIC is an integrated ActivePMUTM power management unit. It is designed to power a wide range of processors, including Atmel’s SAMA5D2, FPGA’s, peripherals, microcontrollers, and solid-state drive applications. It is highly flexible and can be reconfigured via I2C for multiple applications without the need for PCB changes. The low external component count and high configurability significantly speeds time to market.
Advantages of our Modular Power PMU

This document describes the characteristic and operation of the Active Semi ACT8870EVK1-102 evaluation kit (EVK). It provides setup and operation instructions, schematic, layout, BOM, and test data.
This EVK demonstrates the ACT8870QJ102 ActivePMU™ power management IC.
Other ACT8870QJxxx options can be evaluated on this EVK by replacing the IC and any other necessary components.
To communicate with the EVK a USB Dongle and a Graphical User Interface (GUI) is provided. Download the GUI and all documentation and drivers here or in the Software TAB.
The Graphical User Interface (GUI) is packaged in a ZIP file that includes the software and all necessary drivers to communicate with the ACT8870EVK1-101 Evaluation Tool, as well as all descriptions how to use the tool.
