Summary

The MCP1630 NiMH Battery Charger Demo Board is now obsolete
Recommended Replacement Board(s):

MCP1630 Low-Cost NiMH Battery Charger Reference Design

Devices Supported
: MCP1630

The MCP1630 High Speed PWM is interfaced to the PIC16LF818 to develop a complete NiMH battery charger with fuel gauge capability. The MCP1630 is used to regulate the battery charge current and protect the SEPIC power train against an open circuit (removed battery) or a shorted battery. The high speed (12 ns current sense to output) capability of the MCP1630 is used to switch the SEPIC converter at 1 MHz, minimizing external inductor and capacitor cost, while the PIC16LF818 performs the complex NiMH battery charger timing functions. Both the MCP1630 and PICLF818 protect the battery and circuit in the event of a fault.
