New Power Path Charger IC released, bq24072/3/4/5

A new power path 4.2V Li-Ion charger is available, which can independently charge a cell while powering a system, with not interaction.  Some of the features are programmable input current limiting, DPM-In ( reduces charge current if input voltage sags), DPPM ( reduces charge current if OUT voltage sags), Battery Supplement mode where the battery supplements input current to power excessive system loads, thermal regulation ( if IC reaches 125C, charging current is reduced to prevent further increase in junction temperature) and TS battery monitoring, along with the standard charge profile (CC and CV).
