Design considerations

  • Need to balance extremely long battery lifetimes with always-on functionality - energy efficiency extremely important
  • Low power dissipation is crucial in battery powered devices
  • Need for very small packages or wafer-level chip scale footprints
  • For more power efficient wired charging, the inline Schottky diode can be replaced by two back-to-back MOSFETs

Minimize space, maximize efficiency

The smartphone has become crucial to our daily lives, connecting us to the ‘cloud’ as well as a host of peripherals - from smartwatches and earbuds to smart speakers and mixed reality headsets.
