Linear Battery Charger with Multi-Chemistry Operation

Linear Technology Corp. recently introduced the LTC4079, which is a 60-V, constant-current/constant-voltage, 250-mA multi-chemistry battery charger. According to Linear, its “low quiescent current linear topology offers a simple inductorless design and accepts a wide 2.7 V to 60 V input voltage range.”LinearLTC4079

 

The LTC4079’s features, characteristics, and capabilities include:

  • A resistor-programmable 1.2- to 60-V battery charge voltage range with ±0.5% charge voltage accuracy
  • Adjustable charge current from 10 to 250 mA with an external resistor
  • A low-profile (0.75 mm) 10-pin 3 mm x 3 mm DFN package with backside metal pad for excellent thermal performance.
  • Guaranteed foperation from –40°C to 125°C in both E-and I-grades.
  • One thousand-piece pricing starts at $2.35 each for the E-grade.
