EBV presents: Maxim nanoPower Technology

Lower your IQ

Extending battery and shelf life is critical for powering today’s shrinking devices, most of which demand ever-increasing functionality. To properly support new wearable, health-monitoring, internet of things (IoT), mobile, and other smart, connected devices, you need to master the art of low quiescent (IQ) current. The power supply’s quiescent current is the biggest contributor to a system’s standby power consumption. Lowering IQ is one of the best techniques for delivering the most efficient power and longest battery life to your designs.

Maxim’s nanoPower boost regulators deliver the industry’s smallest solution size and longest battery life for low power devices.

Consuming only 300nA of quiescent current, battery drain is significantly reduced during standby mode. Battery life is stretched with 95% peak efficiency at light loads. The pulse-frequency-modulation (PFM) control scheme with fixed on-time provides high efficiency over a wide output current range.

True Shutdown™ mode, using only 0.5nA current, eliminates the need for external switches. Higher switching frequency means that you can use a smaller external inductor. Using a single selector resistor reduces the external components required. As a result, our solution size can be as small as 6.75mm2 with only 4 external components.

nanoPower op amps, comparators, and current-sense amplifiers enable the longest battery life with ultra-low quiescent current and are offered in tiny, space saving packages.


nanoPower microprocessor supervisors offer ultra-low quiescent current and small package options, making them ideal for wearable, portable and battery-operated equipment where space and power constraints are critical.


DARWIN microcontrollers—a new breed of MCU—are built for the evolving IoT. Wearable-grade power technology means you get the lowest active mode and SRAM retention power available. Large embedded memories mean you don’t have to worry about running out of code space, SRAM, or adding another microcontroller. The massively scalable memory architecture lets you quickly scale application size or meet new market requirements. And advanced embedded security protects you—and your customers—from harm, even if you’re not a cybersecurity expert.
