1. An apparatus comprising:

  • first and second nodes, a storage circuit, and a bypass circuit, wherein the apparatus is configured to;

    during a first phase of an operating period, store in the storage circuit operating power received across the first and the second nodes and isolate by the bypass circuit the first node from the second node; and

    during a second phase of the operating period, operate the bypass circuit using the power from the storage circuit, wherein the bypass circuit shorts the first node and the second node until the power stored in the storage circuit is expended.
