Single Cell 4.5A Fast Charger with NVDC Power Path, OTG, and Integrated ADC

January 28, 2020 by Paul Shepard

The MP2731 from Monolithic Power Systems is a 4.5A highly-integrated switching-mode battery charge management device for single-cell Li-ion or Li-polymer battery. This device with negative voltage dc (NVDC) system power path management is suitable for a variety of applications such as smartphone, tablets, wireless cameras and other portable devices.

Its low impedance power path optimizes efficiency, reduces battery charging time and extends battery life. The I2C serial interface with charging and system settings allow the device to be flexibly controlled.

The MP2731 supports a wide range of input sources, including standard USB host port and higher power wall adapter with fast charge capability. The MP2731 provides USB input type detection via DP/DM pins.

The MP2731 supports USB On-The-Go operation by supplying 5V on input bus with output current limit up to 3.0A.

The MP2731 initiates and completes a charging cycle without software control. It automatically detects battery voltage and charges battery in different stages. The charger automatically terminates when battery charged fully is detected. When the fully battery drops below recharge threshold, the charger automatically starts another charging cycle.

The charger provides various safety features for battery charging and system operations, including charging safety timer, battery temperature monitoring and overvoltage/over current protections. When any fault occurs, the charger asserts an INT to host. The device provides BATFET disable control to enter ship mode and system reset function via DISC pin.

The MP2731 is available in a QFN-26 (3.5mm x 3.5mm) package.
