The LTC3550 is a standalone linear charger with a 600mA monolithic synchronous buck converter. It is capable of charging a single-cell Li-Ion battery from both wall adapter and USB inputs. The charger automatically selects the appropriate power source for charging.

Internal thermal feedback regulates the battery charge current to maintain a constant die temperature during high power operation or high ambient temperature conditions. The float voltage is fixed at 4.2V and the charge currents are programmed with external resistors. The LTC3550 terminates the charge cycle when the charge current drops below the programmed termination threshold after the final float voltage is reached. With power applied to both inputs, the LTC3550 can be put into shutdown mode reducing the DCIN supply current to 20μA, the USBIN supply current to 10μA, and the battery drain current to less than 2μA.

The DC/DC converter switching frequency is internally set at 1.5MHz, allowing the use of small surface mount inductors and capacitors.
