Sophisticated Battery Management IC Now Stocked by Mouser
03 November 2023
Mouser has just added Qorvo’s PAC22140 single-chip intelligent battery management solution to its burgeoning product portfolio.
Optimised to address the demands of higher power density implementations, this device is able support battery packs with up to 20 cells in series. It incorporates a flash-programmable microcontroller element, sophisticated power management capabilities, current/voltage/temperature sensing, plus drive circuitry.
The unique hardware and firmware ecosystem built around this solution, means that design engineers can cut the board real estate allocation by half, and witness a 30% reduction in the associated bill-of-materials (BoM) costs, as well as shortening development times too. While in hibernation mode, the 60-pin QFN device draws <3µA of current. Target applications include power tools, electrically-powered gardening equipment, etc.
