Texas Instruments has launched lithium ion battery charger integrated circuits (ICs) that its says will reduce charge time by 50 percent in smartphones and tablets compared to other charger solutions.
The bq2419x family of 4.5-A output, 20-V input-rated switch-mode chargers with I2C interface and USB On-the-Go (OTG) support delivers faster and cooler charging to a wide array of applications.
The new products fast-charge circuits reduce charge time through battery path impedance compensation, and offer programmable thermal management capability to ensure safee reliable system operation.
The bq2419x battery chargers for single-cell Li-Ion batteries is available now in a 24-pin, 4-mm x 4-mm QFN package.
