How to extend battery life with low quiescent current technologies

Enable lower standby power without compromising system performance

Quiescent current, or IQ for short, is a critical power trend that impacts a growing number of battery-powered end equipments. IQ, or the amount of current when your IC is in a no-load or non-switching state, can come with tradeoff decisions. Luckily, power designers can rest assured that meeting current requirements can be accomplished while improving transient times or reducing overall form factor.
