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.

This article explains how the latest-generation SiC FETs are ideally suited to new inverter designs with lower losses than IGBTs and proven robustness against short circuits, even at high temperatures and under repetitive stress
There’s a further cool thing you can do with a spreadsheet that most SPICEs can’t. That’s to use the spreadsheet ‘solver’ functionality to adjust component values in the search for a better-fitting circuit – or even to find a set of component values for a circuit you can’t otherwise design.
Infineon MOSFETs have been embedded into PC boards by Schweizer Electronic AG
You now need to adjust component values to achieve some system goal, such as predefined frequency response or time behaviour, and there’s no closed method for working out those values.
