Semtech specializes in single-cell, linear battery charger ICs designed for Lithium Ion and Lithium Polymer battery technologies. These charger ICs all feature high integration which simplify design, add safety and reduce component counts. Standard safety and notification features include battery-in-place, charger present, end-of-charge, over voltage, charge time-out and NTC interface capability needed to monitor battery temperature. In addition, independent programmability for pre-charge, fast-charge and termination charging allows accurate control while maintaining maximum cell capacity and safety.
