Product Details

The MAX77985/MAX77986 is a high-performance high input range 3.5/5.5A fast charger with Smart Power SelectorTM. The IC can operate as a reverse boost without an additional inductor, allowing the battery to share its power through the charging port with voltage programmable from 5V to 12V. The device features fully integrated low-loss power switches to provide a small solution size and high efficiency, even at high input voltage and high charging current. Its high switching frequency allows the use of a smaller sized inductor. Li-ion, Li-polymer, and LiFePO4 battery chemistries are supported. The IC is compatible with USB Power Delivery sources with input current capability up to 5A. It can also provide fast unplug detection of 9V and 15V sources for dynamic management of system load. The IC also helps mitigate EMI with the spread spectrum feature. The IC features true load disconnection in reverse boost mode and has an adjustable output current protection limit. The device is highly flexible and programmable through I2C configuration.

The battery charger includes a Smart Power Selector to accommodate a wide range of battery sizes and system loads. The Smart Power Selector allows the system to start up gracefully as soon as an input source is available, even when the battery is deeply discharged (dead battery) or missing. It can be configured so that when power is applied to the charger input, the battery charging can automatically start.
