Battery Charging - Efficient charging of energy storage units
When electronic devices are intended for mobile use, the supply of power by batteries is the first consideration. But the batteries need to be charged, and that’s where the battery-charging ICs have an important part to play. Unlike traditional DC/DC converters, an adapted characteristic curve of voltage and current has to be run through. In addition to the charging itself, there are also demands to be met when it comes to power-path management: As long as there is an adequately large supply available, the battery-charging circuit provides the current for the application and the charging of the battery. If the input supply falls below a specific value, the IC switches over and supplies the application from the battery.
