Dual-Input Linear Chargers, Smart Power Selector
with Advanced Battery Temperature Monitoring
The MAX8934_ dual-input Li+/Li-Poly linear battery char-
gers with Smart Power SelectorK safely charge a single
Li+/Li-Poly cell in accordance with JEITA recommenda-
tions. The MAX8934_ monitors the battery temperature
(TBATT) while charging, and automatically adjusts the
fast-charge current and charge termination voltage as the
battery temperature varies. The MAX8934_ also monitors
the battery temperature while the battery is discharging,
and provides a warning flag (OT) to the system in the
event that the battery is over temperature. Two safety
profiles are supported (see the Charging Profiles section
for details). An ultra-low IQ, always-on LDO provides an
additional 3.3V supply for system power.
The MAX8934_ operates with either separate inputs
for USB* and AC adapter power, or from a single input
that accepts both. All power switches for charging and
switching the load between battery and external power
are included on-chip. No external MOSFETs are required.
The MAX8934_ features a Smart Power Selector to
make the best use of limited USB or adapter power.
Input current limit and battery charge current limit are
independently set. Input power not used by the system
charges the battery. Charge current limit and DC current
limit can be set up to 1.5A and 2A, respectively, while
USB input current can be set to 100mA or 500mA for the
MAX8934A/MAX8934B/MAX8934C/MAX8934E and up to
1.5mA (max) for the MAX8934D. Automatic input selection
switches the system load from battery to external power.
The MAX8934A provides a SYS output voltage of 5.3V,
while the MAX8934B–MAX8934E provides a SYS output
voltage of 4.35V.
Other features include overvoltage protection (OVP),
open-drain charge status and fault outputs, power-OK
monitors, charge timers, and a battery thermistor moni-
tor. Additionally, on-chip thermal limiting reduces the
battery charge-rate to prevent charger overheating.
The MAX8934_ is available in a 28-pin, 4mm x 4mm,
PDAs, Palmtop, and Wireless Handhelds
Portable Media, MP3 Players, and PNDs
Digital Still Cameras and Digital Video Cameras
