LTC4162-L Power Path Switch Indication

Category: Hardware
Product Number: LTC4162-L

I am creating a system with a battery backup and need to determine if the LTC4162-L is supplying power from the input or from the battery. I don't see a specific power path switch indication in the registers. I see in the System Status Register (0x39) Bit 2 indicates that VIN is greater than VBAT sufficiently to start a charge cycle. However, the Power Path Controller section of the datasheet says that VIN needs to fall 20mV below BATSENS+ for the power path switch to change. So this register does not really indicate the switch state. Is there another way to indicate the state of the switch?
