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 Microchip's nanoWatt XLP Technology offer the industry's lowest currents for Run and Sleep, where extreme low power applications spend 90%-99% of their time.
