Description for the BQ24725A


The BQ24725A is a high-efficiency, synchronous battery charger, offering low componentcount for space-constraint, multi-chemistry battery charging applications.

The BQ24725A utilizes two charge pumps to separately drive n-channel MOSFETs (ACFET,RBFET and BATFET) for automatic system power source selection.

SMBus controlled input current, charge current, and charge voltage DACs allow for veryhigh regulation accuracies that can be easily programmed by the system power managementmicro-controller.

The BQ24725A uses internal input current register or external ILIM pin to throttle downPWM modulation to reduce the charge current.

The BQ24725A charges one, two, three or four series Li+ cells.
