At times when minimum battery drain is required and a regulated voltage is needed to supply a circuit, such as a real time clock, commercially available regulators may draw many times the load current as their quiescient operating current. This circuit was developed to reduce the total current while providing a regulated voltage to a relatively con- stant load current.
