Active-Semi Solutions for Sustainability
Chinese (Simplified)English

Novtech’s Platform Evaluation Kit (NOVPEK) provides iMX 6 Series system designers with a comprehensive set of development tools including a proven reference design for Active-Semi’s ACT8847 power management solution. The ACT8847 supports the i.MX6S (single-), i.MX6D (dual-), and i.MX6Q (quad-) core variants, including the ‘Lite’ class processors. Leveraging the ActivePMU? tile-based EEPROM-configurable architecture, the ACT8847 offers significant reductions in board area, layout complexity, and total BOM cost.


Key Features & Benefits

  • Turnkey solution: 80% design effort reduction vs. discretes
  • Compact Design: Up to 80% fexer parts
  • Excellent efficiency with low standby power
  • Complete Sequence Control: Integrated and programmable
  • Semi-custom PMICs through EEPROM coding matrix
