The BQ25125 is a highly integrated battery charge management IC that integrates the mostcommon functions for wearable devices: Linear charger, regulated output, load switch, manual resetwith timer, and battery voltage monitor. The integrated buck converter is a high efficiency, lowIQ switcher using DCS-Control™ that extends light load efficiency down to 10-µAload currents.

The low quiescent current during operation and shutdown enables maximum battery life. Thedevice supports charge currents from 5 mA to 300 mA. The input current limit, charge current, buckconverter output voltage, LDO output voltage, and other parameters are programmable through theI2C interface.

The battery is charged using a standard Li-Ion charge profile with three phases:precharge, constant current and constant voltage. A voltage-based JEITA compatible battery packthermistor monitoring input (TS) is included that monitors battery temperature and automaticallychanges charge parameters to prevent the battery from charging outside of its safe temperaturerange. The charger is optimized for 5-V USB input, with 20-V tolerance to withstand linetransients. The buck converter is run from the input or battery. When in battery only mode, thedevice can run from a battery up to 4.65 V.

A configurable load switch allows system optimization by disconnecting infrequently useddevices. The manual reset with timer allows multiple different configuration options for wake arereset optimization. A simple voltage based monitor provides battery level information to the hostin 2% increments from 60% to 100% of the programmed V(BATREG).
