The LT8584 is a monolithic flyback DC/DC converter designed to actively balance high voltage stacks of batteries. The high efficiency of a switching regulator significantly increases the achievable balancing current while reducing heat generation. Active balancing also allows for capacity recovery in stacks of mismatched batteries, a feat unattainable with passive balance systems. In a typical system, greater than 99% of the total battery capacity can be recovered.
The LT8584 includes an integrated 6A, 50V power switch, reducing the design complexity of the application circuit. The part runs completely off of the cell which it is discharging, removing the need for complicated biasing schemes commonly required for external power switches. The enable pin (DIN) of the part is designed to work seamlessly with the LTC680x family of battery stack voltage monitoring ICs. The LT8584 also provides system telemetry including current and temperature monitoring when used with the LTC680x family of parts. When the LT8584 is disabled, less than 20nA of total quiescent current is typically consumed from the battery.
