MCP1630RD-LIC1: Li-Ion Multi-Bay Battery Charger

Summary

The MCP1630 Multi-Bay Li-Ion Charger is used to evaluate Microchip’s MCP1630 used in a SEPIC power converter application. The MCP1630 Multi-Bay Li-Ion Charger is capable of charging two single-cell, Li-Ion battery packs in parallel utilizing an input voltage of 10V to 30V (battery packs are not included).

Multiple boards can be daisy-chained for additional charger bays. The MCP1630 Multi-Bay Li-Ion Charger is intended for use in pseudo-smart battery charger applications utilizing battery packs containing Microchip’s PS700 Battery Monitor. Standard battery packs can be utilized as well.

The MCP1630 Multi-Bay Li-Ion Charger provides a constant current - constant voltage charge with preconditioning, cell temperature monitoring, and battery pack fault monitoring. Each charger bay provides a status and fault indication. The MCP1630 Multi-Bay Li-Ion Charger automatically detects the insertion or removal of a battery pack.
