The LTC4013 has "E" and "I" versions. What is the difference between them?
The price of I version is higher than that of E version, the I version is for an automotive market?
Hi I'm designing a charger for 4 series LifePo4 Batteries the total battery stack is nominal 12.8V. The max charge voltage for this battery stack is 14.4V or 3.6V/cell. The Datasheet doesn't mention how to set up the FB pin for different battery…
What is main difference between LTC4013 and LTC4000? (Both are same 60V Buck Charger . I think other specs are also similar)
LTC4013 is mainly made for Lead-acid batteries? and LTC4000 is for Li-Ion?
But in the datesheet LTC4013 also supports Li-Ion…
On page 23 of the datasheet it states:
If the inputvoltage is more than the gate breakdown of the externaltransistor, a TVS diode is required to prevent the disablecurrent or pin leakage from pulling INFET all the way toground.
No problem. But on page…
In table 1, page 16, the VFloat and VRecharge voltages for Li-Ion batteries are way too low for that type of cell. I think that the designers mistakenly divided the voltage of a 12V battery by 6 (as for lead-acid batteries), instead of by 4, to represent…
I have designed a charger based on Fig.21 on Pg.35 of the datasheet.
Attached is the schematic which is on a printed board.
Battery chemistry : LiFePO4 4 cells in series
Charge Voltage : 15V
Charge current : 4A max (settable by removing…
I am considering the LTC4013 as part of a complete BMS. To this end I would like to simulate the solution. Do you have available a Pspice transient model for the IC?
Just wondering what the parameter is why link below states that maximum output current is 20A for LTC4013?
I assume gate charge is the limiting factor... but with an external gate drive supply, output current can be increased…
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…
I am designing a battery charger based on LTC4013 and am trying to make the charge current adjustable. Here's my idea:
Instead of connecting Rsense directly to the BAT and SENSE pins, I would use an external differential unity gain amplifier to make…
