Prolong Your Smart Watch Lifetime with SIMO
Learn how to power a smart watch with a highly integrated PMIC based on the SIMO architecture. We compare SIMO to a traditional solution with a low level of integration. Thanks to a unique SIMO architecture, the MAX77654 PMIC efficiently delivers more power in a smaller space, enabling longer battery life and smaller form factor for smart watches and other miniature portable applications.

Keep Your Head Up with a High-Dimming Ratio Automotive LED Driver

 

Keep Your Head Up with a High-Dimming Ratio Automotive LED Driver
LED drivers must have a high dimming ratio and accuracy to correctly reproduce color, provide low noise to avoid interference with the car radio, and be robust enough to directly interface with the battery. In this article, we review the features necessary for the LED driver to safely connect to the battery while providing high performance in a flexible architecture for ease of reuse. Subsequently, we introduce a novel LED driver IC that meets these stringent requirements.
