Power Converters and Switching Regulators Made For IoT | Symmetry Blog

Aug 28, 2018


In the past, we've discussed the advantages of using a switching regulator tailored for IoT. Because the Internet of Things requires a different set of power requirements compared to previous technology, an important consideration when designing for IoT is a power module suitable for the efficient energy conservation needed for IoT devices to operate over a long period of time.

The fact is, the Internet of Things (IoT) incorporates distributed intelligence, interconnected sensors, actuators and data exchange, all of which require that each device is able to interconnectedly communicate with each other. Not every power supply is suitable for an IoT application. They must be space-saving, reliable, and highly efficient at both low load and full load.


Power Supplies for a Smarter World

To meet the power supply needs of IoT and Industry 4.0, RECOM has developed multiple low cost, highly efficient, compact AC/DC and DC/DC modules, as well as a low input voltage boost converter that is able to generate a reliable power supply from a single battery cell. They have also developed evaluation boards to test the viability of the boost converter within an application.
