2.5A Battery Charger with Power Path Management
The MP2637A from Monolithic Power Systems is a highly-integrated, flexible, switch-mode battery charger with system power path management designed for single-cell Li-ion or Li-polymer batteries for use in a wide range of applications.
The MP2637A can operate in both charge mode and boost mode to allow for full system and battery power management.
When the input power is present, the MP2637A operates in charge mode. The MP2637A detects the battery voltage automatically and charges the battery in three phases: trickle current, constant current, and constant voltage. Other features include charge termination and auto-recharge.
The MP2637A also integrates both input current limit and input voltage regulation to manage the input power and meet the system power demand priority.
In the absence of an input source, the MP2637A switches to boost mode through MODE to power the SYS pins from the battery. The OLIM pin programs the output current limit in boost mode.
