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, Microchip has introduced nanoWatt XLP™ Technology. Extreme low power microcontrollers featuring nanoWatt XLP™ Technology offer one of the industry's lowest currents for sleep, where extreme low power applications spend 90-99% of their time.
|Benefits of nanoWatt XLP™ Technology
- Sleep/power-down current down to 20 nA
- Brown-out reset down to 45 nA
- Watch-dog timer down to 400 nA
- Real-time clock/calendar down to 500 nA
