Ultra low-power timer with watchdog functionality and manual reset

26-03-2015 | Texas Instruments | Semiconductors

The Texas Instruments (TI) TPL5010 Nano Timer is an ultra low-power timer
with a watchdog feature ideal for system wake up in duty cycled or battery
powered applications. In such systems the device can be used for system
wake-up, but if the timer sleep current is high, up to 60-80% of the total
system current can be consumed by the timer in this sleep mode.

Consuming only 35nA, the TPL5010 can replace the functionality of the
integrated ┬ÁC timer and allow it to be placed in a much lower power mode.
Such power savings enable the use of significantly smaller batteries making
it well suited to energy-harvesting or wireless sensor applications.
