LTC1760, Smart Battery Selector

Hello,

my current design is powered by two smart batteries and an external power source. I need to switch between these sources at runtime. I found the LTC1760 device, that looks like a good choice for me. It seems that this device is very old. How does the life cycle look like? Do you have an replacement for this device?

I don't need to charge the smart batteries in my application, so basically I'm looking for a smart battery selector.

 

Thank you very much in advance for your answer.

Best regards,

 

Till Hagemann

    Hi Till,

    The LTC1760 is indeed very old and wise, but it is still very much an active part with no suitable replacement. As a result, we have no plans to obsolete this part anytime soon.

    That said, if you don't need to charge the smart batteries, I might recommend that you use a different/simpler part. It could be worth taking a look at LTC4418 or LTC4417 depending on whether you want to manage 2 or 3 sources, respectively.

    Regards,

    Zack
