The all new nPM1300 Power Management IC & EV Kit

With unique system management features for low-power wireless applications

nPM1300 power management IC & Evaluation Kit

The nPM1300 is a power management IC (PMIC) that simplifies system design by integrating essential functions required for embedded Bluetooth Low Energy designs into one small package, enabling longer run times and efficient battery charging with fewer components.

The nPM1300 Evaluation Kit allows for simple evaluation and code-free configuration of the nPM1300 Power Management IC (PMIC). By connecting to the nPM PowerUP app found in nRF Connect for Desktop, all settings of the nPM1300 can easily be configured through an intuitive GUI and exported as code to be implemented in your MCUs application.

  • Seamless integration and code-free configuration with the nPM PowerUP desktop app
  • Male pin headers provide access to all nPM1300 PMIC connections, for easy connection to Nordic Development Kits (DK) and external test equipment
  • Integrated LEDs and pushbuttons allow for evaluation of the built-in LED drivers and
    GPIOs of the PMIC

Power Management IC

The nPM1300 is optimized for maximum efficiency and compact size and is configurable through an I2C-compatible Two Wire Interface (TWI). This interface enables easy access to configure a range of advanced system management functions, including integrated hard reset functionality for one or two buttons, accurate battery fuel gauging, system-level watchdog, power loss warning, and recovery from failed boot. These functions are typically implemented as discrete components in Bluetooth Low Energy (LE) embedded designs, but the nPM1300 integrates them into a single, compact package, simplifying system design and reducing the number of required components.

The nPM1300 is designed to provide highly efficient power regulation for Nordic’s nRF52® and nRF53® Series, as well as the nRF54H20 advanced wireless multiprotocol Systems-on-Chip (SoC). The PMIC is also suitable for battery charging for applications based on the nRF91 Series systems-in-package (SiPs) for cellular IoT, by using the PMIC’s unregulated output to power the SiP's internal buck regulators. The nPM1300 is also suitable for use with non-Nordic host devices.

nPM Fuel Guage Board

The nPM Fuel Gauge board (nPM FG) connects to any compatible Nordic Semiconductor evaluation kit. The purpose of the board is to act as a constant current sink device during battery profiling with nPM PowerUP desktop software. The battery model generated in nPM PowerUP can be used for evaluation of fuel gauge in nPM PowerUP and exported as an include-file for use in any application using the Nordic fuel gauge algorithm.

To use the nPM Fuel Gauge board you also need a compatible Evaluation Kit from Nordic Semiconductor.
