Part Number: BQ25890

The charger is basically a step-down DC-DC (buck) converter. It requires the input voltage to be higher than the output voltage with some headroom for normal operations.

  • The maximum duty cycle specification is one of the factors determines the maximum output voltage at a fixed input voltage. Users should avoid maximum duty cycle operations in their applications by setting VINDPM and IINDPM thresholds correctly.
  • Please refer to Extract maximum power from the supply when charging a battery ( for the details.
