Pub Date: 2015-09-24

Pub Number: US20150268678

The disclosed systems and methods for current management can be used with system-on-a-chip (SoC) integrated circuits in, for example, battery-powered portable devices. The current management provides detection of supply current levels from a power management integrated circuit (PMIC) to an SoC.
