Single Cell Li-Ion Battery Charger with C/5 Termination

Simplify charging and gas gauging with a single IC. Linear


Technology offers battery chargers that include an output signal
pin with a voltage proportional to the charge current for simple
gas gauging (VPROG). For more sophisticated gas gauging, Linear
offers the LTC4150.

Linear Technologys pulse battery chargers


dissipate only 280mW while fast charging at
0.8A from a 9V current limited input source,
whereas a linear charger dissipates as much
as 4.8W. Unlike switchmode chargers where
an inductor is used to achieve high efficiency,
a pulse charger dissipates minimal heat
without an inductor.

Comparator and Voltage Reference Building Blocks


The combination of micropower comparators and a voltage reference in a single package provides an ideal building block for battery
monitoring. Typical applications include circuits for gas gauge battery monitoring, low-battery load reduction, backup battery switchover
and window comparators with hysteresis.
