Enroll to Review the Nordic nPM1300 Power Management IC Eval Kit

Table of contents


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
  • The kit itself offers JST battery connectors for batteries with or without internal NTC, and male pin headers for access to all nPM1300 connections. In addition, three LEDs and four pushbuttons are implemented for ease of use when evaluating the GPIO and LED diver functionality of the PMIC.

For initial evaluation of the fuel gauging capabilities within the nPM1300, users may use one of the pre-profiled battery models already included in nPM PowerUP. The fuel gauge solution relies on a battery model for best state-of-charge accuracy. Profiling your battery and generating a battery model is a one time effort where you’ll need some additional hardware.

Comment List
  • I was intrigued by the line "Profiling your battery and generating a battery model is a one time effort where you’ll need some additional hardware" above and have done a bit of digging.

    It seems that the hardware being referenced is the nPM Fuel Gauge board. However, despite spotting a few brief references to it in some of the documentation, it doesn't look like it's possible to purchase this mysterious board. Has anyone else found anything useful about this?

    I suppose it's possible to road test the rest of the nPM1300 features without this. Maybe it's only necessary if you are going into production with a particular battery and want to get things spot-on.

  • Nice Roadtest. BTW, yesterday nordic announced that it will now mass produce the nRF1300 PMIC chip.

    I think this is a good chip for for solar and battery powered devices with two inbuilt buck converters and other smart features.
