New devices of today and tomorrow demand more functionality, but extending battery life and shelf life is also critical. Maxim's nanoPower technology products offer the ability to lower quiescent current (IQ) of a power supply, which is the biggest contributor to a system’s standby power consumption. Lowering the IQ is one of the most effective techniques for delivering the most efficient power and longest battery life to a design. Engineers need to master the art of low quiescent current in wearables, health-monitoring, Internet of Things (IoT), mobile, and other smart, connected devices. Maxim’s nanoPower technology can help engineers with their designs by incorporating ICs that consume less than a microamp of quiescent current and is offered in a small solution size that can result in a 50% space savings. Current offerings in nanoPower technology include regulators, amplifiers, and supervisors.
