ABLIC Inc. (President: Nobumasa Ishiai, head office: Chiba City, Chiba Prefecture, hereinafter ABLIC) today launched the S-35710/20 (I-Series), a wake-up timer IC with ultra-low power consumption that allows flexible wake-up time settings. This product has already been launched as a convenience timer for automotive use, but the new S-35710/20 (I-Series) timer IC was launched as a general-purpose wake-up timer IC. A wake-up timer IC is an IC that enables intermittent system operation by periodically starting up the system.
The current consumption of the new S-35710/20 (I-Series) product is as low as approximately 0.2Î¼A, or only about 1/5 (*1) of the current consumption of an MCU in sleep mode. Wake-up time can be set in 1-second increments over a wide time period from 1 second to 194 days making it a highly flexible wake-up timer IC. Integrating this IC in an existing system will help you easily build a low power consumption system.
Where ABLICs S-1318 Series LDO is used as a power supply with this IC, it is possible to build an intermittent operating system with an extremely low power consumption of 0.3Î¼A or less. This will enable to develop batteries with longer life and compact size and to pave the way for other systems with ultra-low power consumption.
(*1) According to our survey
[ Major Features ]
1. Ultra-low current consumption: 0.2Î¼A typ.
2. Flexible wake-up time settings
3. Simple command settings (S-35710)
Three commands provide appropriate control of wake-up time settings as follows.
- Write wake-up time register (Wwtr) A command used for setting the wake-up time. A program provides flexible settings.
- Read wake-up time register (Rwtr) A command used for confirming the set wake-up time.
- Read time register (Rtr) A command used for confirming elapsed time. Using this command with the Write wake-up time register makes it easy to properly confirm that a wake-up time has been set.
[ Application Examples ]
– IoT communication devices, monitoring devices, security devices, and a wide variety of other battery-powered systems and energy harvesting systems
