A Microwatt Charge Pump Boosts 1V to 1.8V at 90% Efficiency - Provides “always on” standby power for microcontrollers
Boosting the output voltage of common alkaline button-cells to at least 1.8V needed by microcontrollers provides an “always on” standby power source sufficient for low-power oscillator interrupt/sleep state operation.
Using the TS1001, low-voltage current-sense amplifier circuits can be designed to monitor battery or solar cell currents. These very same circuits are useful to estimate power capacity and remaining life.
In many battery powered systems a user would like to know when it was time to replace the batteries before they were completely discharged, causing the device being powered to fail completely. Alkaline batteries have an open cell voltage of about 1.5V....
Combining 3 very low-power analog components (a precision voltage-reference, an op amp, and an analog comparator with an internal reference) can control a USB-powered portable fan and keep you cool in Central America, South America, Asia, the Middle East,...

How to Configure a Low-Power Timer/Oscillator to Operate from Higher Supply Voltages
Check out how the TS1001 can be used to build an accurate Oxygen sensors (O2 sensors)signal conditioning amplifier.
Novel Current-Sense Measurement with Automatic Offset Correction Operates at 0.8V, Runs on a Few Microamps, and is Accurate to +/-1µA
Pairing a simple circuit using nanopower analog op amps with a microcontroller can monitor single battery cells and solar harvesters
Prior to the advent of surface-mount technology (SMT), all analog semiconductor products were manufactured using dual-in-line (DIP) packaging, making circuit prototyping quick and easy. Check how easy it is to prototype with products in SMT.
New current-sense amplifier technology is redefining the state of the art – learn how your system can benefit from this new development.
Single-Cell Regulated Q-Pump Draws Low Quiescent Current Download PDF
The MicroCC uses the Touchstone Semiconductor TSM6025 voltage reference, a drop-in replacement for the MAX6025, with better than 15ppm/ºC stability. This is an ideal part to use both as the reference voltage and regulator for the TS1001IJ5 (previously ...
Use a Self Powered Op Amp to Create a Low Leakage Rectifier - An Amplifier that Works at 0.8V is Key
You can combine a carefully chosen op amp, a low-threshold P-channel MOSFET, and two feedback resistors to make a rectifier circuit with less forward drop than a diode.
Analog circuits powered from limited-energy solar cells are now enabled by new developments in op amp design and process technology – learn more here.
