Many of our Qwiic products draw very little current when in standby, but there are some that draw considerably more. Products like our top-end u-blox GNSS boards in particular. There are times when you wish you could switch them off to save power, and the Qwiic Power Switch (QPS) allows you to do exactly that! Based on the PCA9536 4-Bit I2C I/O expander, the QPS can completely disconnect any attached devices so you can minimize your current draw and extend your battery life when you need to.
