Product Description

The MP2639C is a highly integrated, flexible, switch-mode, battery-charging management device for 2-cell series Li-ion and Li-polymer batteries used in a wide range of portable applications.

The MP2639C is able to charge a 2-cell battery from a 5V adapter or USB input. The MP2639C can work in three modes: charge mode, discharge mode, and sleep mode.

In 2-cell applications, the 5V input charges the 2-cell battery via the MP2639C operating in step-up mode. When the 5V input is absent, the 2-cell battery voltage is discharged to the 5V output via the MP2639C working in step-down mode.

For the charging function, the MP2639C detects the battery voltage automatically and charges the battery in three phases: trickle current, constant current, and constant voltage. Other features include charge termination and auto-recharge.

To guarantee safe operation, the MP2639C limits the die temperature to a preset value of 120°C. Other safety features include input over-voltage protection (OVP), battery over-voltage protection (OVP), thermal shutdown, battery temperature monitoring, and a programmable timer to prevent prolonged charging of a dead battery.

The MP2639C is available in a QFN-26 (4mmx4mm) package.
