BD83070GWL - Documentation

The BD83070GWL was developed to be the de facto standard for low power eco devices used in compact battery-driven applications. Original control technology (X Ramp PWM Control) enables seamless buck-boost transition while built-in low current circuitry achieves an industry-best power conversion efficiency of 97% during operation (200mA load current) along with class-leading 2.8uA current consumption. This contributes to longer operating time in compact battery-driven devices - by as much as 1.14x over standard products during standby (100uA load current).

* This is a standard-grade product.
