SmartSleep: Intelligent Power Management

Maxim's unique SmartSleep technology saves power, cost, and board space by integrating load-detection circuitry into a video filter IC.

With SmartSleep, inactive filters and amplifiers are turned off on a per channel basis according to the detected input signals and output loads.
