Low Power library

This library allows you to use the low power features of the SAMD21 MCU. This means your battery powered projects will have a longer battery life on boards like MKRZero, MKR1000 and MKRFox1200.

In these pages the term companion chip is used. This term refers to an board co-processor like the MIPS processor on the Arduino Tian.
