FS3871

General Description

The FS3871 Lithium-Ion (Li-Ion) and Lithium-Polymer (Li-Pol) linear charge-management ICs are designed for cost sensitive and compact portable electronics. They combine high-accuracy current and voltage regulation, battery conditioning, temperature monitoring, charge termination, charge-status indication, and Automatic charge-rate compensation in a single 8-pin IC. TSSOP package is offered to fit a wide range of end applications.

The FS3871 continuously measures battery temperature using an external thermistor. For safety, the FS3871 inhibits charge until the battery temperature is within user-defined thresholds. The FS3871 then charges the battery in three phases: conditioning, constant current and constant voltage. If the battery voltage is below the low-voltage threshold, V(min), the FS3871 pre-charges using a low current to condition the battery. The conditioning charge rate is approximately 10% of the regulation current. The conditioning current also minimizes heat dissipation in the external pass element during the initial stage of the charge. After conditioning, the FS3871 applies a constant current to the battery. An external sense-resistor sets the current. The sense-resistor can be on either the high or low side of the battery without additional components. The constant-current phase continues until the battery reaches the charge-regulation voltage.

The available 8-pin TSSOP-8/MSOP-8 package is offered for balanced area and cost effective requirements for size-sensitive applications.

The FS3871 is suitable for the control of charge sequences of a variety of portable battery-powered applications, such as cellular phone°¶s travel and base charger devices, digital camera, digital-video camcorder (DV), MP3 player ,etc.
