This approach consists of partitioning the design into separate voltage domains (or voltage islands), each operating at a proper power supply voltage
level depending on its timing requirements.
Previously, the power supply voltage
of CMOS steadily reduced to approximately 1.
The output stage, whether switching or linear, then effectively "scales down" this supply voltage
to the required output signal level.
A supply voltage
of 24 or 90 VOC for DC motors,
Requiring a supply voltage
of 12 to 50 VDC, the controller can deliver 95 percent of the supply voltage
to the motor at 5 A continuous current or 10 A peak current.
Driver outputs are short circuit protected, even for voltages exceeding the power supply voltage
The frequency range of the FOX923E is 13 to 26 MHz, with a supply voltage
range of 2.
The state of California is considering this approach, now called conservation voltage reduction (CVR), which rests on the undisputed fact that constant-resistance loads--such as incandescent lighting--draw power proportional to the square of the supply voltage
75 V dc to 24 V dc and maximum supply voltage
is 17 mA.
A newer method of determining the ground's position uses the furnace's normal power supply voltage
Because many circuits are optimized to work at voltages below the battery-supplied voltage, the difference between the battery's voltage and a circuit's optimum supply voltage
is dissipated in a voltage regulator, and thus lost in the form of thermal energy.
The TS985 can operate from a supply voltage
as low as 1.
