joke about doing a very bad thing
oh sorry it has a real pocket. if i want to store a fuckin quarter
this low leakage RTC backup power circuit has a bit of cleverness. The PNP transistor actually operates in the reverse active region briefly during the power changeover. The reason for it is that the E-B resistor is required to keep the leakage low (Icbs < Icbo) but if it were on the other side, would provide a leakage path of its own via the C->B junction
I still need to fully test this with proper nA current measurement but I'm (prematurely?) quite pleased with myself lol

A silly instance of Mastodon for queer folk and non-queer folk alike. Let's be friends!
