Maxim Integrated Products has introduced the MAX17435/MAX17535 highly-integrated SMBus multichemistry battery chargers. The MAX17435/MAX17535 provide SMBus™-programmable charge current, charge voltage, input current limit, relearn voltage, and digital readback of the IINP voltage. The MAX17435/MAX17535 utilize a charge pump to control the adapter selection n-channel MOSFETs when the adapter is present. When the adapter is absent, the charge pump is shut down and a p-channel MOSFET selects the battery.
The MAX17435/MAX17535 provide up to 7A of charge current to 2, 3, or 4 lithium-ion (Li+) cells in series. The charge current, and input current-limit sense amplifiers have low offset errors and can use 10mΩ sense resistors. The MAX17435/MAX17535 fixed-inductor ripple architecture significantly reduces component size and circuit cost.
The MAX17435/MAX17535 provide a digital output that indicates the presence of the adapter, an analog output that indicates the adapter or battery current, depending upon the presence or absence of the adapter, and a digital output that indicates when the adapter current exceeds a user-defined threshold.
The MAX17435 switches at 850kHz, and the MAX17535 switches at 500kHz.
The MAX17435/MAX17535 are available in a small, 4mm x 4mm x 0.75mm 24-pin, lead-free QFN package. An evaluation kit is available.
