A method for reducing current drain in a communication device includes a first step of developing (206) a history of readings of received signal strengths (RSS) of a neighboring broadcast control channel (BCCH).
Analog voltage drain with reduced current drain is achieved by a new capacitive-divided feedback architecture.
Thus, current consumption is suppressed while increasing the accuracy of current monitoring.
A cancellation current source may be configured within the bias circuit to cancel unneeded current to further minimize current consumption.
Portions (44, 48, 58, 88) of the communication device operated at desired power levels but at reduced current consumption levels, thereby to reduce power consumption of the communication device (12).
When variation in the current consumption scheduled value with respect to the current consumption value exceeds a predetermined limit value, issuing of some of the instructions is inhibited in the second predetermined period.
In such a way, current consumption is reduced, and heating due to this current consumption is reduced, when displaying a peculiar image upon source-block reversal driving.
The TRS controller is configured to determine an efficient time to bring the ECU out of a minimum electrical power consumption stage into a medium power consumption stage in order to determine a next action of the TRS.
The oven includes a controller that monitors power consumption of the heater and uses the power consumption to control the heater and/or the speed of the motor that drives the conveyor belt.
The calculation unit determines whether or not the sum total value of the total electric power consumption and the electric power consumption that is estimated when the apparatus is operated is greater than a prescribed value.
An AC/DC power supply circuit having simpler structure, a smaller circuit scale and a lower power consumption is thereby provided.
Power consumption is compared to a threshold, and a signal is asserted that power consumption is to be limited based on the comparison to the threshold.
The early power down procedure reduces the consumption of power in the mobile phone.
