I am currently designing a BMS including the new BQ76952 chip.
For external communication I am using a RS485-Transceiver with current consumption of approx. 50 mA.
Additionally I need to supply a SAMD10 with approx. single digit mA current consumption and some LEDs.
Overall the output current for the 3.3V circuit is < 90mA.
Since the LDOs of the BQ76952 are each limited to 45 mA I cannot distribute my components among the LDOs and maintain sufficient margin.
The battery pack will be used in audio applications with a tight budget so I have been encouraged to avoid using a buck converter.
Can I parallel the LDOs of the BQ76952 both set to 3.3V to supply sufficient current? If so what would be the suggested external circuitry?
E.g. is it viable to tie the LDO outputs together via Schottky diodes? Since the LDOs are on the same chip I assume smaller deviations than using two standalone LDOs.
Thank you for your support!
