Renesas' lithium-ion battery management (Li-ion) solution is built around a battery management IC that offers a low-power microcontroller (MCU) and high-performance analog front-end (AFE) in a single package, along with an evaluation board, sample code and other tools to support the development of safe, secure and high-performance Li-ion batteries.

Target applications for Li-ion battery management solutions include notebook and laptop computers, power tools, cordless vacuums, and motor-assisted bikes.

Safety Control

Enable high battery pack safety with multiple fail-safe detection functions

  • Built-in self-diagnostic functions using an integrated MCU and AFE
  • Ultra-low power storage mode
  • Over/Undervoltage
  • Overcurrent
  • Over/Under temperature
  • FET control during failure
  • Fuse blow

Capacity Calculation

Continuous high accuracy battery capacity detection

  • Delta-Sigma analog-to-digital converter optimized for current, voltage and temperature measurement
  • Adjusts remaining capacity calculation dynamically for aged and deteriorated cells
  • Capacity calculation with built-in learning
  • Current and voltage calibration functions
  • Battery history and record keeping function

Comprehensive Development Environment

Starter kits with an evaluation board (EVB), sample code and user's manual for easy evaluation

  • Evaluate the device performance and operating behavior using the EVB; includes an E1 connector for easy on-chip debugging
  • Available sample program source code for all basic battery management functions
  • Communication with PC via I2C Bus
  • GUI I/F displays the battery parameter status such as voltage, current and temperature
