    star networks ZigBee while low energy can operate in ad hoc mesh networks where a central node may be unreliable or even lacking The required data transfer rate can heavily impact power consumption though the effect on overall energy consumption will depend on whether it s more efficient for a given application to slowly feed bits to the power amplifier or to power up burst out data and quickly power down The choice of frequency has numerous consequences The 2 4 GHz ISM band is often contested by competing Wi Fi Bluetooth and ZigBee devices The 5 GHz ISM band is less crowded and offers a lot more bandwidth but signal strength degrades much more rapidly and readily than at lower frequencies The sub GHz bands 868 MHz in Europe and 915 MHz in the U S provide much greater range but a PCB mounted antenna for those frequencies is too small to be efficient The choice of RF components and protocols is ultimately driven by the application Whatever your application Mouser is very likely to have a component or board level solution that meets your requirements Read More View Featured RF Products for Low Power Analog Devices Low power and analog at first glance don t seem to go together Class A op amps consume correspondingly more power as the input voltage rises and achieving a good SNR may result in relatively high current drain There are various ways around the problem First replace Class A op amps with rail to rail common mode Class AB op amps which are biased at small currents and thus dissipate less quiescent power In doing so be careful that you can still provide sufficient gain and output power maximizing gain while preserving an acceptable bandwidth and slew rate Digitize the signal as soon as possible You can often use digital filtering to compensate for a weak analog signal that might otherwise be too close to the noise floor When evaluating analog to digital converters ADCs choose one that can match the bandwidth and SNR of the signal to be quantized if the sampling rate is more than twice the bandwidth of the signal the Nyquist rate then you can largely ignore quantizing error On the other hand oversampling can degrade your power profile so be cautious about choosing an ADC that may have much higher resolution than you need At the same time note that any source of noise whether quantization error clock jitter or noise from a preceding preamplifier will reduce the effective number of bits ENOB of resolution There are many types of ADCs the two main ones being successive approximation SAR and sigma delta or delta sigma SAR ADCs make a series of comparisons between an input voltage and a known reference to home in on the input value Sigma delta ADCs oversample the input signal and then use feedback and filtering to reduce noise and increase resolution Generally SAR ADCs are less expensive lower resolution and lower power

DC DC Power Supplies Switched Mode Power Supply Topologies BUCK FLYBACK FORWARD HALF BRIDGE AC AC AC AC power supplies are transformers that can step up or step down an AC voltage These can be as simple as the power supplies used in toys and small industrial applications or as large as those used on the line transformers outside of homes or as gigantic as the huge transformers found at power generation plants such as the Hoover Damn When dealing with single phase AC systems the most common type of transformer is appropriately enough called a single phase transformer These have two coils one primary and the one secondary Three phase transformers are used for three phase AC systems and contain six coils one pair for each phase Transformers are selected using four common specifications The Power Rating is the rated power of the transformer s secondary winding and is represented as Watts The Maximum Primary Voltage is the highest voltage that can be applied to the transformer s primary winding The Maximum Secondary Voltage is the maximum voltage available from the transformer s secondary winding Lastly the Direct Current Resistance is the measured resistance of the transformer s windings when a test DC current is applied It s crucial that the correct transformer be selected for a given application or the system can be damaged For example if a transformer is selected that is rated for more power than the circuit requires the circuit will not draw more power than it needs but without the proper load on the transformer the transformer may overheat and fail
