For low-power devices powered by alkaline or lithium primary batteries, every microampere of current becomes critical for extending battery life and increasing the time between battery replacements. This is especially true when the primary device being powered is a low-power microcontroller (MCU)—significant power savings can be achieved by exploiting the typically wide input-voltage range during the microcontroller’s sleep or standby modes...
