Hi I have been using the LTC4015 in my products for several years now and find it to be an excellent part. I have a new application and would like to keep using the LTC4015 to reduce inventory and increase purchase quantities.
My new application does not require the Power Path functionality, i.e. the system is not powered from the SYS output, also the coulomb counter is not required, how many parts from the evaluation schematic can be eliminated, i.e. do I need the OUTFET OR THE INFET, do I need all the SYS filter capacitors? Can some of the FETs be replaced by diodes?
Your assistance is appreciated.
