element14 has been a distributor of electronic components and solutions for over 80 years. It has now added Nordic Semiconductor’s latest power management chip, the nPM1100.
This chip offers a higher efficiency-to-size ratio than those currently in the market, along with a PCB area usage as low as 23mm². It also combines a small form factor with tight integration and efficient power conversion, helping designers achieve a longer battery life without increasing the physical size of the chip.
An increase in battery life while adding functionalities and not increasing the form factor, is a constant issue for product designers. This chip that solves the issue is now made
Simon Meadmore, Vice President of Product and Supplier Management, element14, says “We are excited to see Nordic Semiconductor revolutionise the PMIC market with such a game changing product. The need for innovative and compact professional wearable wireless devices and connected applications for medical use is growing exponentially. Connected medical devices for use in hospitals or patient homes offer many new opportunities. This new PMIC gives designers a new weapon for increasing power delivery and efficiency in an economic, ultra-low form factor package.”
Nordic Semiconductor’s new nPM1100 PMIC is available for fast delivery from Farnell in EMEA, Newark in North America and element14 in APAC.
