1-Cell, 2.0 A Battery Charger PMIC with 20 mA Termination, Ultra-Low IQ Reverse Boost, and I2C

DA9168 System Diagram

DA9168 is a configurable Battery Management IC (BMIC) with integrated dual LDOs and reverse boost to support USB-OTG. The extremely low quiescent current consumption in a very compact footprint makes it ideally suited for a multitude of space conscious, battery powered consumer applications. The fast-growing hearable segment for True Wireless Stereo (TWS), wearable segment
for smart watches, and a range of smart home applications such as smart cameras are examples where the DA9168 is an extremely good fit.

The device comprises a high-efficiency switch mode charger with power path management capable of supporting up to 2 A charge current, dual LDOs that can be configured as load switches, and high-efficiency reverse boost functionality.

DA9168 has several power saving modes to increase battery life whether the product sits on the shelf or is in operation. Further savings in power are achieved with the ultra-low IQ reverse boost converter that is efficient down to 60 μA load currents with low power LDOs.
