Voltage Regulator/Battery Charger Control is programmable via SMBus.

Press Release Summary:

Model ISL9519 Narrow Vdc system voltage regulator and battery charger is designed for applications where system power source is battery pack or output of regulator/charger, amking max voltage to system equal to max battery voltage instead of max adapter voltage. Product controls trickle charging of deeply discharged batteries while maintaining system voltage at user defined minimum and is also able to charge 1, 2, or 3 series connected Li-Ion cells at up to 8 A charge current.

Original Press Release:


The ISL9519 is a highly integrated Narrow VDC system voltage regulator and battery charger controller. Operating parameters are programmable over the System Management Bus (SMBus). The ISL9519 is designed for applications where the system power source is either the battery pack or the output of the regulator/charger. This makes the max voltage to the system equal to the max battery voltage instead of the max adapter voltage. The ISL9519 also includes a patented system to control trickle charging deeply discharged batteries while maintaining system voltage at a user defined minimum. High efficiency is achieved with a DC/ DC synchronous-rectifier buck converter, equipped with diode emulation and variable switching frequency for enhanced light load efficiency and AC-adapter boosting prevention. The ISL9519 can charge one, two or three series connected Lithium-ion cells, at up to 8A charge current. Default settings for 1-, 2- or 3-cell operation at power-up are selected by an external pin. Integrated MOSFET drivers and bootstrap diode result in fewer components and smaller implementation area. Low offset current-sense amplifiers provide high accuracy.

The ISL9519 provides an open drain digital output that indicates the presence of the AC-adapter. The ISL9519 also provides an analog output that indicates the adapter current.
