Reducing energy consumption is mandatory for today's appliance designs as consumers seek "green" products and government regulations push for lower standby and run-time power consumption.

As more electronic applications require low power or battery power, energy conservation becomes paramount. Today’s applications must consume little power, and in extreme cases, last for up to 15–20 years while running from a single battery. To enable applications like these, products with our nanoWatt XLP technology offer the industry’s lowest currents for Run and Sleep, where extreme low-power applications spend 90–99% of their time.

Our leading nanoWatt XLP technology achieves best-in-class standby power for microcontrollers while incorporating features such as LCD controlcapacitive touch sensing and USB. Lower-power analog products deliver both low stand-by and run-time currents including LDOsswitching regulatorsop amps/comparatorsbattery chargers, and supervisors.

PIC® MCUs Offer eXtreme Low Power

  • Sleep currents down to 9 nA
  • Active mode currents down to 30 uA/MHz
  • Wake-up sources include RTC, WDT, BOR, Interrupts, Reset, POR

Low-Power Analog Highlights

  • LDOs down to 2.0 nA quiescent current
  • Switching regulators down to < 4 uA quiescent current
  • Op amps/comparators down to 450 nA quiescent current
