IDT battery chargers offer a high level of integration, programmability, up to 92% efficiency and ultra-low power consumption. The Li-Ion battery and supercapacitor chargers are optimized for photovoltaic (solar) applications. Specialized devices feature a maximum power point tracking (MPPT) function to extract the maximum possible power from the photovoltaic charging source.
About Li-Ion Battery Charger ICs
A good Li-ion battery charger IC is a sophisticated device capable of a battery quickly and safely, while minimizing losses in the system. Different battery systems require different termination voltages and maximum charge currents, making programmability essential for speedy development cycles and design adaptably. Compact product form factors require highly-integrated solutions with small external components, while specialized features and status reporting capability provide maximum efficiency and control.
