Extended battery life in portable devices with new low Iq LDO

Extended battery life in portable devices with new low Iq LDO
Extending battery life in portable devices up to four times longer than traditional ultra-low quiescent (Iq) LDOs, Microchip has announced a linear Low Dropout (LDO) regulator. With an ultra-low Iq of 250nA versus the approximate 1uA operation of traditional devices, the MCP1811 LDO reduces quiescent current to save battery life, enabling end-users to recharge or replace batteries less often. The minimised power consumption enables portable electronic devices to run for months or even years on a single battery.
