Strengthen your power management IQ: Quiescent current resources


1.2 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 variations of quiescent current cited on the front page and the EC table. This training is intended to:

a) highlight the differences between each type of quiescent current variant that you might encounter in the datasheet

b) reveal which quiescent current values you will want to pay specific attention to for your system design

c) show you how the standby quiescent current is calculated, using other values you may find in the datasheet
