Low ICCT Gate Devices Curb Hidden Power Consumption
Thu, 04/08/2010 - 1:19pm
Fairchild Semiconductor's low ICCT gate TinyLogic® devices provide solutions to reduce the potential of hidden power consumption that can occur in mixed supply voltage mobile designs in feature-rich mobile products such as mobile handsets, smart phones and medical applications. TinyLogic low ICCT gates offer up to 99% reduction in quiescent power consumption compared to standard CMOS products when the input high voltage (VIH) is less than supply voltage (VCC). During this state, the quiescent ICCT current will increase and can cause unrecognized power consumption. Packaged in an ultra-compact 6-pin MicroPak packaging, measuring 1 mm x 1.45 mm, TinyLogic low ICCT gates take up minimal board space, making them appropriate for space-constrained designs. Additionally, future developments are planned to introduce these products in next-generation MicroPak2 package (1.0 mm x 1.0 mm), offering a 30% smaller footprint than first generation MicroPak packages.
