Anybody think a Power Management ICs is a good idea for P2 boards?
Is it overkill? Maybe...
I'm looking at the MAX77714 right now...
Unfortunately, most of the PMICs I've found, the above included, target a core voltage <1.8 V.
But, this one has several buck converters and we could just not use the low voltage one.
What's nice is that it also has an RTC (that doesn't need a crystal) and a WatchDog timer.
There are some simpler ones like this: TPS65053
But, I haven't found one that's a perfect fit for 1.8V core yet... Anybody know of a better option?
