You may not expect to read about multiple amp loads in the context of “Low Power Design”. It could be an indication of how wide-spread the push for energy efficient products has become. In many embedded applications it is quite common for a micro drawing a few milliamps to control motors or solenoids that require several amps of current or high-brightness LEDs that draw several hundred milliamps. Even if these current ranges are way above what your design has to deal with, the information presented here may be applicable to your design.
