MAX8900A

1.2A Switch-Mode Li+ Chargers with ±22V Input Rating and JEITA Battery Temperature Monitoring

JEITA-Compliant Battery Chargers that Minimize Solution Size and Heat in Space-Constrained Consumer Electronics


Please check latest availability status for a specific part variant.

Description

The MAX8900_ is a high-frequency, switch-mode charger for a 1-cell lithium ion (Li+) or lithium polymer (Li-Poly) battery. It delivers up to 1.2A of current to the battery from 3.4V to 6.3V (MAX8900A/MAX8900C) or 3.4V to 8.7V (MAX8900B). The 3.25MHz switch-mode charger is ideally suited to small portable devices such as headsets and ultra-portable media players because it minimizes component size and heat.

Several features make the MAX8900_ perfect for high-reliability systems. The MAX8900_ is protected against input voltages as high as +22V and as low as -22V. Battery protection features include low voltage prequalification, charge fault timer, die temperature monitoring, and battery temperature monitoring. The battery temperature monitoring adjusts the charge current and termination voltage as described in the JEITA* specification for safe use of secondary lithium-ion batteries.

Charge parameters are easily adjustable with external components. An external resistance adjusts the charge current from 50mA to 1200mA. Another external resistance adjusts the prequalification and done current thresholds from 10mA to 200mA. The done current threshold is very accurate achieving ±1mA at the 10mA level. The charge timer is adjustable with an external capacitor.

The MAX8900_ is available in a 0.4mm pitch, 2.44mm x 2.67mm x 0.64mm WLP package.
