Now part of the company’s family of low-power customer specific standard products (CSSPs), the wake-up and verify (WAV) proven system block (PSB) allows handheld mobile system developers to conserve energy through effective power management by shutting down the CPU and the CSSP between bursts of activity caused by peripherals. WAV PSB detects and verifies the activity of components in the system while managing active/standby power during specific tasks. It consumes less than 5 mA while monitoring activities and detects when to wake up the system. For example, monitoring of an audio jack is a typical app whereby the system waits for the insertion of earphones into a mobile device, which is often a random occurrence.
