Title (EN) LOW POWER START-UP CIRCUIT
(FR) CIRCUIT DE DÉMARRAGE BASSE PUISSANCE
Abstract: front page image
(EN)A start-up circuit includes an energy storage device operable to selectively power a load. A switch controls a flow of current from the energy storage device to the load. The switch preventing a flow of current to the load in an OFF state. A voltage comparison device is configured to turn the switch ON to permit a flow of current to the load in response to a charge of the energy storage device exceeding a predefined voltage threshold. The voltage comparison device maintains the switch in an OFF state in response to the charge of the energy storage device being below the predefined voltage threshold.
(FR)Selon l'invention, un circuit de démarrage comprend un dispositif de stockage d'énergie pouvant alimenter sélectivement une charge. Un commutateur régule un flux de courant passant du dispositif de stockage d'énergie à la charge, et empêche que le flux de courant passe à la charge à l'état "hors tension". Un dispositif de comparaison de tensions est conçu pour mettre le commutateur "en tension" de façon à permettre le passage d'un flux de courant à la charge lorsqu'une charge du dispositif de stockage d'énergie dépasse un seuil de tension prédéfini. Le dispositif de comparaison de tensions maintient le commutateur dans l'état "hors tension" lorsque la charge du dispositif de stockage d'énergie est inférieure au seuil de tension prédéfini.
