Re: very smart design idea
By the way, how often have you seen this sort of a timer used in a design? I.e., are there any actual applications with which you are familiar? (Not asking for a list of companies doing this - don't want to give away secret company information.)

very smart design idea
Martin - this is a very clever idea.Never thought of making an extremely low power timer like this to periodically wake up the other parts of the system. Previously when I've considered any sort of timer, I've gotten stuck in thinking about this the same old way. I would assume that it must be very accurate, so that meant a real-time clock (RTC) - which of course draws more power. And all for accuracy that's not really needed. So thanks for forcing me to rethink.

At the heart of a transceiver is usually a phase-locked-loop (PLL) synthesizer, which delivers a signal to downstream components such as mixers, filters and power amplifiers.
The steps we will look closely at are the fine leak and gross leak seal tests, external visual, and radiation latch-up tests
Recently, AEye, was demonstrating their LiDAR system at CES in Las Vegas. A man using his new $1,198 Sony camera found that his photographs were damaged after he took pictures of AEyes LiDAR LASER scanning system
The e-car basic concept is represented by the role of the electronics technology in making the car more comfortable, safe and effectively interacting with the driver. The first characteristic, comfort, is nowadays being dramatically enhanced by the new solution known as Road Noise Control (acronym: RNC) that has been introduced by BOSE during the CES 2019 in Las Vegas
Early microcontrollers had fixed I/O. It may have been possible to connect one of several internal peripherals to the I/O pins, but those pins were restricted and there was never an option of conditioning those outputs
