Ultra-low quiescent-current regulator suits IoT SoCs at 55nm

Since they use just 1% of their battery life in active mode, one of the major challenges of IoT applications is lowering the deep-sleep mode power consumption. Designers need to achieve a power consumption as low as a few micro-amps, while preserving data retention and supplying always-on functions. The qLR-Aubrey ultra-low quiescent-current linear regulator from Dolphin Integration meets this need.
