Texas Instruments bq25628/bq25629 Battery Charger ICs


Texas Instruments bq25628/bq25629 Battery Charger ICs are highly-integrated 2A switch-mode battery charge management and system power path management devices for single-cell Li-ion and Li-polymer batteries. The solution is highly integrated with built-in current sensing, loop compensation, input reverse-blocking FET (RBFET, Q1), high-side switching FET (HSFET, Q2), low-side switching FET (LSFET, Q3), and battery FET (BATFET, Q4) between system and battery. The device uses narrow VDC power path management, regulating the system slightly above the battery voltage without dropping below a configurable minimum system voltage. The low impedance power path optimizes switch-mode operation efficiency, reduces battery charging time, extends battery life during discharging phase, and the ultra-low 0.15µA ship mode current extends battery shelf life. The I2C serial interface with charging and system settings makes bq25628 and bq25629 truly flexible solutions.

The bq25628 supports a wide range of input sources, including a standard USB host port, USB charging port, and USB-compliant high-voltage adapter. The bq25629 has the ILIM pin to set the default input current limit and TS_BIAS pin for controlled thermistor bias. The device complies with USB 2.0 and USB 3.0 power specifications for input current and voltage regulation and meets the USB On-the-Go (OTG) operation power rating specification up to 2.0A

Application Circuit

Texas Instruments bq25628/bq25629 provides various safety features for battery charging and system operations, including battery negative temperature coefficient thermistor monitoring, charging safety timer, and overvoltage and overcurrent protections. The thermal regulation reduces the charge current when the junction temperature exceeds the programmable threshold. The STAT output reports the charging status and any fault conditions. Other safety features include battery temperature sensing for charge mode and OTG boost mode, thermal shutdown and input UVLO, and overvoltage protection. The INT output notifies the host when a fault occurs or status changes. The bq25628 and bq25629 are available in an 18-pin, 2.5mm × 3.0mm WQFN package.
