Ricoh Electronic Devices Company R1810 600nA IQ Boost DC/DC Converters
Ricoh Electronic Devices Company R1810 600nA IQ Boost DC/DC Converters are boost DC/DC converters featuring a typical start-up voltage of 0.35V. Ricoh R1810 is designed for electrical power storage devices, especially 1-cell photovoltaic (PV) energy harvesters. The R1810 can start up with 9µW, making it ideal for charging a 1-cell PV element. R1810 can be used in a system working under a low-illuminance environment.
Low quiescent current [600nA typical (IQ_VOUT)]
High efficiency (66% at IOUT = 5μA)
Startup with low input energy, 9μW (low illuminance)
