Efficient power for analog design

From your smartwatch to your home security system’s control panel to an entire office building’s automated lighting or air conditioning, power efficiency is a major priority. When the stakes are high, you simply cannot afford for your device to fail, which is precisely why Maxim Integrated has developed a portfolio of high-efficiency power conversion ICs.

Maxim’s efficient power ICs offer extended battery life in compact form factors, thanks to low voltage, low quiescent current solutions. This makes them optimal for a range of handheld or portable designs that depend on an internal power source. See how Maxim’s efficient power solutions can work for you.
