Choose the Right Buck-Boost for Your IoT Tracker

Abstract: Narrowband IoT (NB-IoT) and LoRa (Long Range) IoT devices must operate for a few years powered only by small batteries. To reduce power consumption, careful selection of each block is a must, as well as a buck-boost regulator that operates efficiently over a wide output current range. The MAX77827 buck-boost converter, with its high efficiency, smooth transition, low quiescent current and small size, provides an ideal power solution for NB-IoT and LoRa asset tracking applications.
