Lithium Ion Polymer battery charger using ISL9220
Using the ISL9220 IC designed by Intersil Semiconductor can be designed a very simple and high efficiency cost-effective battery charger for 1-cell Li-ion and Li-Polymer based portable applications.
The device features synchronous PWM technology, maximizing power efficiency, thus minimizing charge time and heat. The 1.2MHz switching frequency allows use of small external inductors and capacitors.
A simple charge current programming method is provided. External resistors program the fast charge and end-of-charge currents.
The two status outputs can be used to drive LEDs, or can be connected to host processor.
A programmable charge timer provides the ability to detect defective batteries, and provides a secondary method of detecting charge termination. A thermistor interface is provided for battery presence detection, and for temperature qualified charging conditions.
This Lithium Ion Polymer battery charger electronic project require an input voltage that is between 4.5 volt and 14 volts.
