The BQ21061 is a highly integrated battery charge management IC that integrates the most common functions for wearable, portable and small medical devices, namely a charger, a regulated output voltage rail for system power, a LDO, and push-button controller.

The BQ21061 IC integrates a linear charger with PowerPath that enables quick and accurate charging for small batteries while providing a regulated voltage to the system. The regulated system voltage (PMID) output may be configured through I2C based on the recommended operating condition of downstream IC’s and system loads for optimal system operation.
