Title: How to Know When it’s Time to Lower Your IQ
Date: Available On Demand
Duration: 50 minutes


No matter what people tell you, sometimes it’s smart to have a low IQ. In this webinar, we address the challenge of designing for ultra-low power consumption and discuss when a lower quiescent current is necessary. You’ll be introduced to the newest generation of ultra-low power ICs perfectly suited for IoT applications, wearables devices and similar contemporary markets. Finally, you’ll learn how nanoPower ICs can extend your design’s battery life, reduce the size of your PCB and lower your IQ.

Attendees will learn:

  • The definition of nanoPower technology
  • How to overcome the design challenges of limited space and ultra-low-power operation
  • Examples of where and how to use nanoPower ICs
