IoT-Aimed Power Converter Reduces Resting Power by 50%

IoT-Aimed Power Converter Reduces Resting Power by 50%

MIT researchers have developed a power converter that works over a wide range of currencies and reduces resting power consumption by 50 percent, making it well-suited for the power needs of the Internet of Things (IoT) devices, they said. At the International Solid-State Circuits Conference in earlier this year, engineers from MIT’s Microsystems Technologies Laboratories (MTL) demonstrated a new power converter that maintains its efficiency at currents ranging from 500 picoamps to 1 milliamp, a span that encompasses a 2,000,000-fold increase. Power converters take an input voltage and convert it to a steady output voltage. The range in currents of the researchers’ converter is dramatically different than the range of a typical power converter, which is generally in a narrow range of currents. This wide range provides more flexibility for the power considerations of IoT app...
