The PSoC 3 and PSoC 5LP low-power modes allow you to reduce overall current draw without limiting functionality, especially when implemented with other power-saving features and techniques.

This application note describes the fundamentals of the PSoC low-power modes, provides information on Active mode power-saving methods, and discusses other low-power considerations. It is assumed that the reader is familiar with PSoC 3 and PSoC 5LP device architecture and PSoC Creator operation. A list of related documents that expand on some complex topics mentioned here is available at the end of this application note.
