Introduction to the CIP Hybrid Power Kit

The Core Independent Peripheral (CIP) Hybrid Power Starter Kit is a hardware platform designed to demonstrate the flexibility of Microchip’s CIP Hybrid Power microcontroller as used in a Switch Mode Power Supply (SMPS) application.

The board incorporates the PIC16F1779 as the freely programmable Power Management Integrated Circuit (PMIC) device of a Synchronous Buck Converter.

The Synchronous Buck Converter on the board accepts input voltages ranging from 6 V to 16 V and delivers an output voltage of 3.3 V with a maximum load current of 8 A. The output of the power supply is rated for maximum 25 W.
