austriamicrosystems released a pair of step-down DC-DCs that offers fast and highly efficient charging of Li-Ion batteries in mobile devices with up to 1.25A output current.
The AS3610/11 ICs include numerous safety and protection features, internal current measurement, and USB Host/OTG boost mode operation. The AS3610 DC-DC provides an I≤C interface for external control and the AS3611 operates independently.
Applications include those that are powered by one Li-Ion battery, including high-end blood glucose meters, remote controls, GPS outdoor navigation or tracking equipment, mobile phones, e-dictionaries and e-book readers.
The AS3610/11 switching charger ICs were designed with inputs from the handset and portable markets to use a high efficiency switch mode charger with minimum ripple. Implementation is simplified with most options and features controlled by pin strapping or OTP (one time programmable) memory. These features include current limit set, charging current, OTG boost, and more. The AS3610 step-down DC-DC also supports 900mA input current limitation for USB 3.0.
