Abstract

Figure 1 illustrates circuit 10 providing a low-power This impedance increases when the voltage on power voltage clamp in battery-backed RAM circuitry, Circuit bus 12 returns to acceptable levels and circuit 10 returns 10 consumes much less power than conventional Zener to a low-power-dissipation idle state. diode clamping circuits in the idle state.
