Hi, this is my first Question.
I am considering LTC4013 to use a charge device for 12S LiPo battery. According to a datasheet, the maximum operating input voltage is 60V. However, the absolute maximum voltage of VIN is also 60V in page 2. Can I set the maximum input voltage set to 60V? Or, how much reduce this voltage from 60V?
I am waiting for Answer.
You may not exceed 60V at any time. You may go as close to 60V as you need to without exceeding it. Generally we include a margin between the operating voltage and the abs max, but we did not with this part.
Thank you for your advice. I feel strange for this data sheet.
Anyway, please close this Q&A.
