I am about to start a simple wireless project. Basically, when the user pushes or releases a button on a remote unit, some data should be transmitted to a main unit. Thus, when the button is pressed or released, I need power for about two seconds on the remote unit. At all other times, I want the remote unit to consume absolutely no current at all. Does a chip suitable for this exist or do I need to design some clever circuit myself?
