The MCP73837/8 AC/USB Dual Input Battery Charger Evaluation Board demonstrates Microchip's stand-alone Linear Li-Ion Battery Chargers - MCP73837 and MCP73838. The MCP73837/8 require only minimum components to implement a complete battery charge management circuit. The MCP73837/8 are designed to select AC-Adapter or USB-Port Power Source automatically where AC-Adapter provides the charge current when both sources are present.
The MCP73837/8 AC/USB Dual Input Battery Charger Evaluation Board comes with a 10-pin DFN MCP73837 and a 10-pin MSOP MCP73838 pre-installed. The different packages can be easily evaluated by replacing the device, a resistor and a LED where the patterns have been pre-designed on the board layout.
