Product Details

The LTC2942 measures battery charge state, battery voltage and chip temperature in handheld PC and portable product applications. Its operating range is perfectly suited for single-cell Li-Ion batteries. A precision coulomb counter integrates current through a sense resistor between the battery’s positive terminal and the load or charger. Battery voltage and on-chip temperature are measured with an internal 14-bit No Latency ΔΣ ADC. The three measured quantities (charge, voltage and temperature) are stored in internal registers accessible via the on-board SMBus/I2C interface.

The LTC2942 features programmable high and low thresholds for all three measured quantities. If a programmed threshold is exceeded, the device communicates an alert using either the SMBus alert protocol or by setting a flag in the internal status register.

The LTC2942 requires only a single low value sense resistor to set the measured current range.
