Switching Power Manager with USB On-The-Go & Overvoltage Protection in a Compact 12mm2 Footprint
The on-chip switching regulator also features programmable input current limits of 100mA and 500mA for enhanced USB compatibility, as well as a wall adapter input current limit setting up to 1.2A. For fast charging, the LTC4160/-1 converts nearly all of the 2.5W available from the USB port to charging current, enabling up to 600mA of charge current from a 500mA limited USB supply and up to 1.2A of charge current from a wall adapter. The device provides an overvoltage protection (OVP) control circuit that prevents damage to its input from the accidental application of high transient voltages. The OVP circuit can protect the USB port even when the IC is providing power for USB OTG.
The LTC4160/-1's PowerPath(TM) control with automatic load prioritization seamlessly manages power flow between a variety of input power sources such as a wall adapter or USB port and the Li-Ion/Polymer battery while preferentially providing power to the system load. The IC's "Instant-ON" operation ensures system load power even with a fully discharged battery. The LTC4160/-1's switching regulator features Bat-Track(TM) adaptive output control which greatly improves the efficiency of its battery charger by maintaining the output voltage approximately 300mV above the battery voltage. An internal 180mOhm ideal diode plus optional external ideal diode controller provide a low loss power path from the battery to the load when input power is limited or unavailable. The LTC4160/-1's stand-alone battery charger features autonomous operation that simplifies design and eliminates the need for an external microprocessor for charge termination. To preserve battery energy, the LTC4160/-1 draws < 4uA from the battery in suspend mode and < 8uA in ideal diode mode.
The LTC4160 and LTC4060-1 are available from stock in a compact, ultrathin (0.55mm) 3mm x 4mm 20-pin QFN package. Pricing starts at 2.85 USD each for 1,000-piece quantities. For more information, visit www.linear.com.
