The ATI2301 is a step-down current-mode, DC-DC converter. At heavy load, it works at the constant frequency PWM mode which has good stability and transient response. To ensure the longest battery life under light load in portable applications, the ATI2301 features a power-saving pulse-skipping modulation (PSM) mode, which reduces quiescent current to save power.
FEATURES High Efficiency: up to 96% Internal Synchronous Rectifier Low Quiescent Current: 40μA Three output current versions: 300mA（ATI2301A） 600mA（ATI2301B） 800mA（ATI2301C） High Switching Frequency: 1.5MHz Under-Voltage Lockout Soft Start Short Circuit Protection Small SOT23-5 Package Pb-Free
Drones are, in essence, flying autonomous vehicles. Pros and cons surrounding drones today might well foreshadow the debate over the development of self-driving cars. In the context of a strongly regulated aviation industry, "self-flying" drones pose a fresh challenge. How safe is it to fly drones in different environments? Should drones be required for visual line of sight – as are piloted airplanes? Join EE Times' Junko Yoshida as she moderates a panel of drone experts.
