There are three main components to battery management:
- Charge management ICs integrate all functionality required to safely charge
rechargeable batteries to maximize capacity and minimize charge time.
Battery Fuel Gauging
- Battery fuel gauge ICs allow the system to acquire the exact state of
battery charge. The information from a TI battery fuel gauge IC can form the
basis of a complete power management routine in a portable system, enabling
the system to extend its run time.
- Li-Ion battery packs need protection from overcharge or over discharge
conditions. TI's line of protection ICs offer protection for 1-to-4 series
Li-Ion battery packs. In some cases, a TI Li-Ion protection IC can work with a
TI battery fuel gauge IC to offer a comprehensive battery fuel
