I just regged: PMU.IO The Power Management Unit (PMU) is a microcontroller that governs power functions of digital platforms. This microchip has many similar components to the average computer, including firmware and software,memory, a CPU, input/output functions, timers to measure intervals of time, as well as analog to digital converters to measure the voltages of the main battery or power source of the computer. The PMU is one of the few items to remain active even when the computer is completely shut down, powered by the backup battery. As per Estibot, 11.2 Million Broad Mo Searches and 7.5 Million Exact Mo Searches. PMU has 19 million Google Results. Power Management Unit has 200K Google results.
