Introduction to Buck Converters: Understanding Quiescent Current Specifications


April 12, 2018
Take a quick glance at a DC/DC buck converter datasheet and you will likely find two or three different quiescent current parameters cited on the front page and the EC table. This training is intended to: 1) explain the differences between each quiescent current term, 2) highlight which quiescent current values you will want to pay specific attention to, 3) show you how standby quiescent current is calculated using values in the datasheet.
