Integrated Li-Ion battery linear charger with power routing switch and parallel power paths for portable applications
Sergei Strik and Viktor Strik of Texas Instruments present an exclusive paper discussing a linear charger with power routing switch and parallel power paths. Use of a parallel structure allows reduction the occupied area and keeps system voltage constant and independent from the battery voltage compared to conventional linear chargers. Moreover, an adaptive current distribution function between battery and system allows charging of the battery as fast as the system allows. A power routing switch allows powering of the system while the battery is independently charging. This feature reduces the charge and discharge cycles of the battery and allows the system to run with an absent or defective battery pack. In addition it allows the measurement of charging and discharging currents without an external sense resistor. The Li-Ion battery charger is designed with 0.18-micrometre CMOS double poly, five metal, 1.8V/5V/28V combined voltage domains technology.
