nPM1300 Hardware Design Guidelines

This document provides guidelines for the hardware design and integration of nPM1300. It is intended for system integrators and hardware engineers.

nPM1300 is a Power Management Integrated Circuit (PMIC) with a linear-mode battery charger suitable for Lithium-ion (Li-ion), Lithium-polymer (Li-Poly), and Lithium iron phosphate (LiFePO4) batteries. It comes in a compact 5 mm x 5 mm Quad Flat No-lead Package (QFN) or a 3.1 mm x 2.4 mm Wafer Level Chip Scale Package (WLCSP) supplemented with regulated supplies, load switches, and a variety of system management features. nPM1300 has two highly efficient dual mode DC/DC buck regulators with configurable output. The buck regulators have automatic mode switching from hysteretic to Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) depending on load condition.
