Simplify Designs and Maximize Battery Runtime with Maxim's Micropower Fuel Gauge

MAX17048 QuickView Data Sheet

Key Benefits
  • Accurate fuel gauging: The ModelGauge algorithm provides accurate state of charge, and compensates for temperature and load variation.
  • Simplified design: The algorithm also eliminates the need for the current-sense resistor required in competing coulomb-counting fuel gauges.
  • Power conservation: The MAX17048 automatically detects when the battery enters a low-current state and switches into a low-power 4µA hibernate mode, while still providing accurate fuel gauging.
