The TPS61299 is a synchronous boost converter with 95-nA ultra-low quiescent current with high efficiency under light-load conditions to achieve long operation time and average input current limit to avoid battery discharging with high current.

TPS61299EVM-103 is an evaluation module for the TPS61299 boost converter with 95-nA quiescent current. TPS61299 is ideal for low quiescent products powered an alkaline or coin battery.

Extend battery run time with the TPS62843, a high-efficiency, ultra-low Iq (275 nA) step-down (buck) converter in a 0.8-mm x 1.05-mm WCSP package. This 1.8-V to 5.5-V input, 600-mA buck converter is suitable for wearable and medical applications.

The TPS7A02 is an ultra-small, ultra-low-Iq (25 nA) low-dropout linear regulator (LDO) that can source 200 mA with excellent transient performance. This device maintains low Iq consumption even in dropout mode to further increase battery life.
