Featured Technology Designing Smart Phone Power Management Systems

April 1, 2004 5:49 am | Product Releases | Comments

New 3.xG smart phones combine the traditional 2G cellular phone with PDA-like features. Such diverse functionality requires numerous components, most of which have differing power parameters. Therefore, smart, power management is no longer an option — it's a requirement. By Jeff Falin Cellular phone technology has come a long way since the days of the huge, clunky "bag" phones or those phones that were tethered to the car ba...
