Evaluation Module for TPL5100 Nano Power Programmable Timer with Power Gating Functionality
The TPL5100EVM is an evaluation platform for TPL5100 device. The TPL5100 is a long term timer IC optimized for low power applications. This IC can replace a micro controller's (µC) internal timer, allowing the µC to stay completely off instead of running a timer, providing a total power consumption reduction of 60 to 80%. The TPL5100 is designed for use in power cycled applications and provides selectable timing from 16seconds to 1024seconds. The TPL5100 can also monitor a battery management IC via a power good digital input and power on the µC only when a good supply voltage is present. This evaluation module (EVM) allows a designer to configure the delay timers of the TPL5100 and measure its very low current consumption. Moreover the TPL5100EVM is ready to be connected to the Launchpads of MSP430, Stellaris and C2000 in order to test its watchdog and timer and power cycling features.
