Imagine budget is not an issue and you are asked to design the most efficient circuit. With efficient, I mean that the power used to perform the functions is used solely for that and is not dissipated as heat for example. Note that I am interested in answers at the component level, not at design level.
Some initial thoughts were: choosing high-efficiency DC/DC converters ICs, using LDOs, low ESR caps... What else could I add to this list to only select "high-efficiency electronic components"?
Edit: the idea of this post was too see what replies I would get from asking if there is such thing as "efficient electronic components" It seems no answer can be provided if the application is not specified. Therefore:
- What can you do at component level to have a more efficient DC/DC converter?
- Would you say that choosing ICs that have very low quiescent current is a good practice to have a "high-efficiency" or "low power" circuits. Please notice my use of ""
