NXP choose Torex power ICs for it IoT prototyping kit
To accelerate prototyping and development of internet of things (IoT) end nodes, NXP has introduced the Rapid IoT prototyping kit. The secure, power-optimised kit is designed to make the IoT more accessible to a wide range of innovative developers. The prototyping kit can dramatically simplify the development of proof-of-concept (PoC) IoT edge nodes for consumer, commercial, and industrial markets, says NXP.
The kit uses Torex’s power ICs. “We believe that both of our innovative power technologies, microDC/DC and ultra-small load switch products, solve the ongoing challenge developers face when it comes to powering IoT applications,” said Koji Shibamiya, CEO of Torex Semiconductor. He added that the company’s power management technology saves power and extends battery life for a variety of IoT applications.
The NXP Rapid IoT platform uses two power and space saving technologies from the Torex product portfolio. The first is the XCL210, an integrated inductor microDC/DC converter, which maximises battery life by consuming 0.5 microA of quiescent current (Iq). The second is the XC8102, a load switch which comes in a package that measures 0.9 x1.2mm to further reduce the overall solution size and minimise PCB real estate.
Torex Semiconductor is an analog specialist, providing CMOS power management ICs particularly for battery powered and energy-efficient applications.
