PMIC with Integrated Chargers and Smart
Power Selector in a 4mm x 4mm TQFN
The MAX8819_ is a complete power solution for MP3
players and other handheld applications. The IC
includes a battery charger, step-down converters, and
WLED power. It features an input current-limit switch to
power the IC from an AC-to-DC adapter or USB port, a
1-cell lithium ion (Li+) or lithium polymer (Li-Poly) charg-
er, three step-down converters, and a step-up converter
with serial step dimming for powering two to six white
LEDs. All power switches for charging and switching the
system load between battery and external power are
included on-chip. No external MOSFETs are required.
The MAX8819C offers a sequenced power-up/power-
down of OUT1, OUT2, and then OUT3.
Maxim’s Smart Power Selector™ makes the best use of
AC-to-DC adapter power or limited USB power. Battery
charge current and input current limit are independent-
ly set. Input power not used by the system charges the
battery. Charge current is resistor programmable and
the input current limit can be selected as 100mA,
500mA, or 1A. Automatic input selection switches the
system load from battery to external power. In addition,
on-chip thermal limiting reduces the battery charge rate
to prevent charger overheating.
