A smart power strip is a popular household appliance, which is widely used in intelligent linkage control and power saving of connected devices, such as a mainframe computer with peripheral equipment, a television with set-top box and router, and more. This Wi-Fi Smart Power Strip reference design uses the highly versatile RL78/G13 microcontroller with a rich lineup and variety of functions and the ISL85003 step-down regulator.
