Simple, Efficient, 1-Cell Li+ Pulse Charger
General Description
The MAX1879 single-cell lithium-ion (Li+) battery charger
utilizes an efficient pulse-charging architecture to minimize
power dissipation in portable devices. This architecture
combines the efficiency of switch-mode chargers with the
simplicity and low cost of linear chargers. This simple
device, in conjunction with a current-limited wall cube and
a PMOS transistor, allows safe and fast charging of a sin-
gle Li+ cell.
The MAX1879 initiates charging in one of three ways: bat-
tery insertion, charger power-up, or toggling the THERM
pin. Key safety features include continuous voltage and
temperature monitoring, a preset charger time-out, and an
8mA precharge current mode to charge near-dead cells.
Automatic detection of input power removal shuts down
the device, minimizing current drain from the battery. An
overall system accuracy of 0.75% ensures that the cell
capacity is fully utilized without cycle life degradation.
The MAX1879 is offered in a space-saving 8-pin µMAX
package. An evaluation kit (MAX1879EVKIT) is available
to help reduce design time.
