ADVANCED LINEAR CHARGE MANAGEMENT IC FOR SINGLE AND TWO-CELL LITHIUM-ION AND LITHIUM-POLYMER
UTC UB2012 is designed for portable electronics with lower cost. Its
advantages of high-accuracy voltage/current regulation, charging status
indication, temperature monitoring, and automatic charge-rate compensation.
In applications, the battery temperature is continuously under monitor
by using an external thermistor, if the temperature is over user-defined
threshold; UTC UB2012 inhibits charge for safety concern.
Generally, the UB2012 charges the battery in conditioning, constant voltage and constant current phases. If the
battery voltage is lower than the low-voltage threshold (VMIN), a low current is used for conditioning the battery. The
conditioning charge rate is around 10% of the regulation current and the heat dissipation in the external pass
element during the initial stage of the charge is minimized by the conditioning current. After the conditioning phase,
the UB2012 applies a constant current that be set by an external sense-resistor to the battery. The sense-resistor
can be on the battery without additional components. The constant current phase continues until the battery reaches
the charge-regulation voltage, then the constant voltage phase is beginning.
UTC UB2012 offers 4.1V, 4.2V, 8.4V and 8.4V fixed-voltage for single and dual cells. Charge stops when the
current tapers to the charge termination threshold (ITERM) and will recharge if the battery voltage falls below the VRCH.
The automatic charge-rate compensation feature reduces the charging time of batteries. For the internal
impedance of battery pack during charge, this advanced technique offers safe and dynamic compensation.
