Intersil – ISL78693: Battery Charger Extends Backup Battery Life of Automotive eCall Systems


The ISL78693 is an integrated single-cell Li-ion or Li-polymer battery charger capable of operating with an input voltage as low as 2.65V (cold crank case). This charger is designed to work with various types of AC adapters or a USB port. The ISL78693 operates as a linear charger when the AC adapter is a voltage source. The battery is charged in a Constant Current/Constant Voltage (CC/CV) profile. The charge current is programmable with an external resistor up to 1A. The ISL78693 can also work with a current-limited adapter to minimize the thermal dissipation.
