The MCP39F511 Smart Plug is a fully functional power meter capable of transmitting its data over a Bluetooth® interface to an Android phone or tablet. It is designed to stand between the wall outlet and any electronic device that the user wants to control and monitor remotely. The system calculates the real-time values of the RMS current, RMS voltage, frequency, active, reactive and apparent power, power factor and also the energy consumption.
The MCP39F511 Smart Plug allows remote power control to save energy when the user turns an unused device off, instead of keeping it in stand-by (still consuming power). It also offers an easy way of monitoring the electrical behavior of home devices and appliances, allowing early detection of malfunctions if an over power or over current event is observed.
The free Android application for the MCP39F511 Smart Plug can be found on the Google Play Store under "Microchip Smart Plug".

 

The MIC23158/9 Evaluation Board has been developed to evaluate the capabilities of the MIC23158/9 family of devices. The board is populated with the MIC23159 device and it’s set for the following voltages:
•Regulator 1: 1.8V.
•Regulator 2: 1.5V.

The MIC23158/9 Evaluation Board features independent Enable connectors with individual pull-up resistors.
To check the status of each regulator, power-good connectors are available for each regulator. The board can be powered from two independent voltage sources or a 0Ω resistor can be placed on R3 so that both converters be powered form the same voltage source.
MIC2877 is a compact and highly-efficient 2MHz synchronous boost regulator with a 6.5A switch. It features a bidirectional true load disconnect function which prevents any leakage current between the input and output when the device is disabled. MIC2877 operates in bypass mode automatically when the input voltage is greater than the target output voltage. At light loads, the boost converter goes to PFM mode to improve the efficiency. In shutdown mode, the regulator consumes less than 2uA. MIC2877 also features an integrated anti-ringing switch to minimize EMI, over voltage and over current protection, UVLO and thermal shutdown. MIC2877 is available in a FTQFN22-8LD package with a junction temperature range of -40°C to +125°C.​
