The power consumption of electronic devices is often an issue for design engineers especially when working with battery operated equipment whereby the total power consumption has to be minimised so that the battery used has sufficient life to make it practical for its intended application. However, there has been a relatively recent trend with regards to oscillator manufacturers’ specifications that are advertised as ‘low-power’. In order to show what is considered as low current-limit values, manufacturers’ are often using what could be considered as ‘poetic-licence’ where current limits are specified under ‘no-load’ test conditions. This apparent ‘low-power marketing is misleading as the… Read Full Blog Post
