  4. Supply Maxim MAX20361
    Small-scale energy harvesting is often an attractive option for supplemental powering of devices having ultra-low power or low-rate/low duty-cycle needs, such as wearables, wireless IoT sensor nodes, and asset trackers. That’s because the ...

  1. Supply Light Analog Devices AD5686 ADA4500-2 ADR4520
    Source: tektonministries.org . LEDs are increasingly being used as energy saving light sources as a response to new energy regulations. They have decisive advantages over conventional lights: they consume less energy, have longer lifetimes, and are ...

  4. Supply Analog Devices ADP1071-1 ADP1074
    Galvanically isolated power supplies are used in numerous applications for different reasons. In some circuits, galvanic isolation is necessary due to safety considerations. In other circuits, functional isolation is used to block any interference ...
