BQ76952 3- to 16-Series Battery Monitors and Protectors for Li-Ion, Li-Polymer, and LiFePO4 battery packs


Texas Instruments’ high-accuracy protector is designed for Li-Ion, Li-Polymer, and LiFePO4 battery packs

Texas Instruments’ BQ76952 device is a highly integrated, high-accuracy battery monitor and protector for 3-series to 16-series Li-Ion, Li-Polymer, and LiFePO4 battery packs. The device includes a high-accuracy monitoring system, a highly configurable protection subsystem, and support for autonomous or host-controlled cell balancing. Integration includes high-side charge-pump NFET drivers, dual-programmable LDOs for external system use, and a host communication peripheral supporting 400 kHz I2C, SPI, and HDQ one-wire standards. The BQ76952 device is available in a 48-pin TQFP package.

    • Multiple SLEEP mode options: 24 µA to 41 µA
    • Multiple DEEPSLEEP mode options: 9 µA to 10 µA
    • SHUTDOWN mode: 1 µA
  • High voltage tolerance of 85 V on cell connect and select additional pins
  • Tolerant of random cell attach sequence on the production line
  • Supports temperature sensing using an internal sensor and up to nine external thermistors
  • Integrated one-time-programmable (OTP) memory programmable by customers on the production line
  • Communication options: 400 kHz I2C, SPI, and HDQ one-wire interface
  • Dual-programmable LDOs for external system usage
  • Package: 48-pin TQFP (PFB)


  • Battery backup units (BBU)
  • E-bikes, e-scooters, and LEV
  • Cordless power tools and garden tools
  • Non-military drones
  • Other industrial battery packs (≥10S)
