Texas Instruments  BQ25601DRTWR

The BQ25601D device is ahighly-integrated 3-A switch-mode battery charge management andsystem power path management device for single cell Li-Ion and Li-polymer battery. The lowimpedance power path optimizes switch-mode operation efficiency, reduces battery charging time andextends battery life during discharging phase. TheI2C serial interface with charging and system settings makes the devicea truly flexible solution.

The BQ25601D is a highly-integrated3.0-A switch-mode battery charge management and system power pathmanagement device for single cell Li-Ion and Li-polymer battery. It features fast charging withhigh input voltage support for a wide range of smart phones, tabletsand portable devices. Its low impedance power path optimizes switch-mode operation efficiency,reduces battery charging time and extends battery life during discharging phase. Its input voltageand current regulation deliver maximum charging power to battery. The solution is highly integratedwith input reverse-blocking FET (RBFET, Q1), high-side switching FET (HSFET, Q2), low-sideswitching FET (LSFET, Q3), and battery FET (BATFET, Q4) between system and battery. It alsointegrates the bootstrap diode for the high-side gate drive for simplified system design.The I2C serial interface with charging and systemsettings makes the device a truly flexible solution.

The device supports a wide range of input sources, including standard USB host port, USBcharging port, and USB compliant high voltage adapter. The device setsdefault input current limit based on the built-in USB interface. Toset the default input current limit, the device uses the built-in USB interface, or takes theresult from detection circuit in the system, such as USB PHY device. The device is compliantwith USB 2.0 and USB 3.0 power spec with input current and voltage regulation. The device alsomeets USB On-the-Go (OTG) operation power rating specification by supplying 5.15 V on VBUS withconstant current limit up to 1.2A.

The power path management regulates the system slightly above battery voltage but doesnot drop below 3.5 V minimum system voltage (programmable). With thisfeature, the system maintains operation even when the battery is completely depleted or removed.When the input current limit or voltage limit is reached, the power path management automaticallyreduces the charge current to zero. As the system load continues to increase, the power pathdischarges the battery until the system power requirement is met. This Supplement Mode preventsoverloading the input source.

The device initiates and completes a charging cycle without software control. It sensesthe battery voltage and charges the battery in three phases: pre-conditioning, constant current andconstant voltage. At the end of the charging cycle, the charger automatically terminates when thecharge current is below a preset limit and the battery voltage is higher than recharge threshold.If the fully charged battery falls below the recharge threshold, the charger automatically startsanother charging cycle.

The charger provides various safety features for battery charging and system operations,including battery negative temperature coefficient thermistor monitoring, charging safety timer andovervoltage and overcurrent protections. The thermal regulation reduces charge current when thejunction temperature exceeds 110°C (programmable). The STAT outputreports the charging status and any fault conditions. Other safety features include batterytemperature sensing for charge and boost mode, thermal regulation and thermal shutdown and inputUVLO and overvoltage protection. The VBUS_GD bit indicates if a good powersource is present. The INT output Immediately notifies host when faultoccurs.

The device also provides QON pin for BATFETenable and reset control to exit low power ship mode or full system reset function.

The device is available in 24-pin, 4 mm × 4 mm x 0.75 mm thin WQFNpackage.
