The AT73C224-x is a family of ultra low cost Power Management Unit, available in asmall outline QFN 5x5mm package.The AT73C224-x family is optimized for portable applications, typically powered by aLi-Ion battery. The AT73C224-x device is also suitable to operate from a standard3.3V to 5.25V voltage rail. It includes four power supplies and a very low power RealtimeClock (RTC). In normal mode (main battery present), the backup battery isrecharged through a 2.6V RTC LDO.The AT73C224-x series offer different automatic start-up sequences (with varyingorders of power-on and specific default output values) and different soft managementmodes: dynamic (via SPI or TWI) with register access or static, with access to poweron/off of the four power supplies.Each AT73C224-x device is equipped with a very low power bandgap reference, lowpower 32 kHz and 1 MHz oscillators and an internal LDO used to generate the internalsupply (VINT) equal to 2.8V. Auxiliary cells, such as a power-on reset (POR) and avoltage monitor are used to control the system power-on (battery plugged in) andpower-off (battery unplugged).The four power supplies are named: BOOST1, BUCK2, LDO3 and LDO4.Table 1-1 lists the different devices available in the AT73C224-x series.
