Voltage Regulators and Load Switches

+5 Boost Regulator (U21)
The +5 volt boost regulator (a Fairchild* FAN48623 switching regulator) converts the +VSYS input supply to a +5 volt power rail, labelled +V5P0V. See Maximum Current Draw for the maximum allowable current draw.
The +V5P0V power rail supplies power to:
  • Micro-HDMI* connector
  • USB load switches and the micro-USB Type-B debug port
  • Breakout connector J13 and the fan header
Note: 
 The +5-volt boost regulator does not start ramping up until the +VDD3 supply from the module connector (J2 pin 30) reaches a minimum of 1.575 V and +VSYS reaches at least 2.2 V.
 
+3.3 Boost Regulator (U27)
The +3.3 volt buck/boost regulator (a Texas Instruments* TPS63021 switching regulator) converts the +VSYS input to a +3.3 volt power rail labelled +V3P3V. See Maximum Current Draw for the maximum allowable current draw.
The +V3P3V power rail supplies power to:
  • USB Type-C Mux
  • Micro-SD card interface level shifter and connector
  • HDMI and UART debug interface level shifters
  • Intel Joule module connector level shifters
  • Breakout connector J13 and the fan header
Note: 
 The +3.3 volt buck/boost regulator does not start ramping up until the +VSYS supply reaches at least 1.8 V and the +VDD3 supply from the module connector reaches a minimum of 1.2 V.
 
+1.8 Buck Regulator (EU5)
The +1.8 volt buck regulator (a Texas Instruments* TLV62084 switching regulator) converts the +VSYS input supply to a +1.8 volt power rail labelled +V1P8V. See Maximum Current Draw for the maximum allowable current draw.
The +V1P8V power rail supplies power to:
  • Micro-SD card interface level shifter and connector
  • HDMI and UART debug interface level shifters
  • Intel Joule module connector level shifters
  • Breakout connector J13
Note: 
 The +1.8 volt buck regulator does not start ramping until the +VDD1 supply from the module connector reaches a minimum of 1.0 V and +VSYS reaches at least 2.7 V.
 
USB Load Switches (U17 and EU3)
There are two USB load switches (a Fairchild* FPF2495UCX and a Texas Instruments* TPS2553DRVT) that control the delivery of the +V5P0V supply to the USB Type-C Configuration Channel (CC) lines for the module, and the USB Type-C and USB Type-A connectors.
Module Sourced Power Supplies (+VDD1 and +VDD3)
The module provides two power rails, each limited to 300 mA, to expansion board J12.
The +VDD1 supply:
  • Provides signal to enable the +1.8-volt buck regulator
  • Enables pullup signals for the DnX and general purpose buttons and the EEPROM I2C interface.
The +VDD3 supply:
  • Enables +5 volt boost regulator and the +3.3 volt buck/boost regulator
The +VDD1 and +VDD3 are routed to the expansion board breakout connectors where they can be used to power other circuitry.
Caution:  
 Ensure that breakout connector loads do not cause power supplies to be overloaded.

Intel's compilers may or may not optimize to the same degree for non-Intel microprocessors for optimizations that are not unique to Intel microprocessors. These optimizations include SSE2, SSE3, and SSSE3 instruction sets and other optimizations. Intel does not guarantee the availability, functionality, or effectiveness of any optimization on microprocessors not manufactured by Intel. Microprocessor-dependent optimizations in this product are intended for use with Intel microprocessors. Certain optimizations not specific to Intel microarchitecture are reserved for Intel microprocessors.
