“Wearables Power Management Integrated Circuit” is the abbreviation for wearables. It is a specific kind of integrated circuit made for wearable gadgets like smartwatches, fitness trackers, and other related gadgets.
A Wearables PMIC is in charge of managing and controlling how much power is used by a wearable device, ensuring that it functions well and gets the most out of its battery.
This is crucial since wearable technology frequently has a small battery life and must be able to run continuously for long periods of time without recharging.
Several power management elements, including voltage regulators, battery charging circuits, power switches, and monitoring features, are frequently included in the Wearables PMIC. Together, these functions improve energy efficiency and prolong battery life.
Wearables PMICs may include additional functionality in addition to controlling power consumption, such as sensor interfaces, Bluetooth connectivity, and other characteristics particular to wearable devices.
All things considered, the Wearables PMIC is a crucial element in the design of any wearable device and it ensures that the gadget functions successfully and efficiently.
Global wearables PMIC market accounted for $XX Billion in 2022 and is anticipated to reach $XX Billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of XX% from 2023 to 2030.
The MAX77659 is a new power management IC (PMIC) from Analog Devices that charges wearable, hearable, and Internet of Things (IoT) devices more quickly.
The MAX77659 is a single-inductor multiple output (SIMO) PMIC that offers over four hours of playtime after a quick ten-minute charge. It also includes an integrated switch-mode buck-boost charger. It reduces the total solution size by 50% and the bill of materials by 60% by using a single inductor to power numerous rails.
The MAX77659 contains three independently programmable buck-boost regulators that work at 91% efficiency under conditions of moderate to heavy load to prolong battery life.
In addition, Qorvo provides ultra-low power PMICs that can be applied to both consumer and medical wearable technologies.
A completely integrated charger, converters (buck, buck/boost, and boost), LDOs, load switches, and GPIOs are all included in these solutions. They were created primarily to reduce solution size and lengthen battery life.
Compact single-chip PMICs for wearables have also been created by Renesas and ROHM Semiconductor. While ROHM Semiconductor is focusing on the automotive sector with PMIC solutions for tiny satellite camera modules, Renesas’ new PMIC complements two of its microprocessors.
