SMBus Level 2 Battery Charger

Product Status: Mass Production


The ISL88733 is a highly integrated Lithium-ion battery charger controller, programmable over the SMBus system management bus (SMBus). The ISL88733 is intended to be used in a smart battery charger (SBC) within a smart battery system (SBS) that throttles the charge power such that the current from the AC-adapter is automatically limited. High efficiency is achieved with a DC/DC synchronous-rectifier buck converter, equipped with diode emulation for enhanced light load efficiency. The ISL88733 charges one to four Lithium-ion series cells, and delivers up to 8A charge current. Integrated MOSFET drivers and bootstrap diode result in fewer components and smaller implementation area. Low offset current-sense amplifiers provide high accuracy with 10mΩ sense resistors. The ISL88733 provides 0.5% end-of-charge battery voltage accuracy.

The ISL88733 is available in a small 5mmx5mm 28 Ld Thin (0.8mm) QFN package.
