Title:
New Components and Design Methods Bring Intelligence to Battery Charger Applications
Name:
AN960
Date:

Author:
Terry Cleveland and Catherine Vannicola
Description:
This application note will describe a typical intelligent battery charger power system application. As with most real life applications, there are many demands made on the power system designer to protect the system in the case of battery removal, plugging the battery in backwards, reverse polarity at the input, a battery shorting and even more unimaginable situations. A complete battery charger, fuel gauge system design will be presented as an example of the mixed signal design method. Battery reference material and basic switchmode power supply converter trade-offs are covered in the beginning of this application note.
