I have an SMD 8 pins micro IC(2mm x 3mm) that I would like to find out what It is so I can replace it. This component in in the power section of a CARDO Scala Rider G4 unit and the marking on the IC is "AAL110 5R" with no logos. The location on board is U603. CARDO have informed me that the unit are no longer being made and no other information are imposible to find. Since the rest of the unit is working fine I just can't charge or use the USB. Any ideas? I have search the MAXIM site whom has most AAL markings belong on their IC, but I just can't narrow it down to the part number.
After getting the final answer from Maxim, they did not find any corolation between my makings to theirs. But to get back to a resistor array.... I am more incline to think that it is used to regulate the current to the battery while charging. When not charging it monitors for the voltage treshold, so to not totally discharge the battery and initiate the indicator LED that the battery as reached it's low state and requires charging. Here is a picture of the chip.
Finaly found what the part is and who produces it. This DFN package chip is from Microship TechnologyInc. The AAL refers to this chip MCP73832T-2ACI/MC (AAL being the code) the number 110 represents the 10th month of 2011, and the 5R is used as a
Alphanumeric traceability code. As expected this chip is used as a Miniature Single-Cell, Fully Integrated Li-Ion, Li-Polymer Charge Management Controller. Now I can proceeed with the repairs. Thanks to all who tried to help finding a solution.
