As more electronic applications require low-power or battery power, energy conservation becomes paramount. Today's applications must consume little power, and in extreme cases, last for up to 15 to 20 years, while running from a single battery. To enable applications like these, Microchip has introduced nanoWatt XLP technology. Extreme low-power microcontrollers featuring nanoWatt XLP technology offer one of the industry's lowest currents for sleep, where extreme low power applications spend 90% to 99% of their time.
