Even though it's typically nominal, quiescent current can be a significant factor in managing battery life for wearables and other small devices.
Battery life is at a critical juncture as our smart, connected devices continue to shrink but are still expected to deliver more functionality and performance than ever before. Effectively extending battery life in future devices will require mastery of low quiescent current. Medical patches that measure body temperature, deliver insulin, and monitor heart rate must [...]
