« on: April 21, 2016, 11:09:07 AM »
The TS331x from silabs looks fantastic :
Boost converter from 0.9V
150nA quiscent current
Burst load optimized with store capacitor
Good output ..

The output not really great at 50mA (100mA at 84% efficiency). But that's a tradeoff.
The other not really great thing is it requires 7 external components.
10-TDFN 0.4mm pitch, not fun to solder by hand.

Would probably be good for a low TX power mote running from a small cell.

With a frying pan and and solder stencil it's (almost) ok !
