BQ76952 3- TO 16-SERIES BATTERY MONITORS AND PROTECTORS FOR LI-ION, LI-POLYMER, AND LIFEPO4 BATTERY PACKS

Texas Instruments’ high-accuracy protector is designed for Li-Ion, Li-Polymer, and LiFePO4 battery packs

Texas Instruments’ BQ76952 device is a highly integrated, high-accuracy battery monitor and protector for 3-series to 16-series Li-Ion, Li-Polymer, and LiFePO4 battery packs. The device includes a high-accuracy monitoring system, a highly configurable protection subsystem, and support for autonomous or host-controlled cell balancing. Integration includes high-side charge-pump NFET drivers, dual-programmable LDOs for external system use, and a host communication peripheral supporting 400 kHz I2C, SPI, and HDQ one-wire standards. The BQ76952 device is available in a 48-pin TQFP package.
