Supporting Information



The BD86852MUF-C PMIC (Power Management IC) for cameras is designed to optimally manage the power supply systems of CMOS image sensors from all major manufacturers. This allows voltage settings and sequence control to be performed with a single IC, reducing mounting area by 41% and contributing to the miniaturization of vehicle camera modules. In addition, a camera PMIC heat concentration distribution circuit can be configured to lower power consumption by achieving a high conversion efficiency of 78.6% that suppresses heat generation.

Key Features

1. Reduces board area by integrating functions optimized for CMOS image sensors

CMOS image sensors – a key component of vehicle cameras – not only require different drive voltage settings and sequence control depending on the manufacturer, but are typically configured utilizing many external components. The BD86852MUF-C is equipped with pins for setting the sequence control and drive voltage of major CMOS image sensors. This significantly reducing mounting area over conventional solutions by requiring fewer external parts, contributing to smaller vehicle camera modules.

2. High conversion efficiency results in lower power consumption

This IC distributes heat concentration by utilizing an external LDO to supply power to the CMOS image sensor. Suppressing heat generation of the entire circuit achieves a high conversion efficiency of 78.6%, 4% more than standard products, which translates to lower power consumption in vehicle camera modules. In addition, the distance between the CMOS image sensor and LDO can be shortened, decreasing disturbance noise in the power supply line to ensure stable power supply to the CMOS image sensor.

3. Built-in spread spectrum function reduces the number of man-hours required for EMI countermeasures

The internal switching regulator (DC/DC converter) includes a spread spectrum function that reduces EMI noise peaks due to switching by approx. 10dB.
Achieving noise reduction without having to change the board minimizes the development load for EMI countermeasures.

4. Integrated power supply system optimized for camera modules ensures high reliability

Three DC/DC converters are incorporated to supply the necessary power to camera modules. At the same time, sequence control is included that reduces the number of external components, along with multiple protection circuits such as a power good function for monitoring voltage conditions. This makes it possible to achieve providing high reliability.
