Future Electronics Has Advanced Battery Management Solutions from Maxim Integrated

Montreal, Canada – May 17, 2018 – Future Electronics, a global leading distributor of electronic components, now carries the most advanced battery management solutions from Maxim Integrated.

Effective battery management is more important than ever. As portable applications extend into more industries, the demand for small, low-cost products with long battery life is increasing. Maxim Integrated offers industry-leading battery management solutions include battery chargers, fuel gauges, battery monitors, battery selectors, and battery protectors—solutions that reduce cost, save space, and significantly extend the battery life of portable products.

Maxim’s fuel gauges monitor remaining battery charge using their proprietary ModelGauge™ algorithm to provide the highest accuracy. SHA-256 authentication helps to prevent battery pack cloning. The battery charger ICs provide support for USB Type-C devices, meeting all Power Delivery (PD) 3.0 voltage range specifications. Together, these battery chargers and fuel gauges provide the efficiency, accuracy, and protection required to support the latest Li+ battery applications.

The MAX32620FTHR board is a rapid development platform designed to help engineers quickly implement battery-optimized solutions with the MAX32620 Arm®Cortex®-M4 microcontroller with FPU. The board includes the MAX77650 ultra-low power PMIC and MAX17055 fuel gauge to provide efficient power conversion and battery management with minimal board space.

The MAX32620 is a high-performance, ultra-low power Arm Cortex-M4 with FPU-Based Microcontroller for rechargeable devices. This is ideally suited for emerging wearable medical and fitness applications.

Future Electronics Introduces Industry’s First Dual-Mode Battery Charging IC from ROHM

Montreal, Canada – April 5, 2018 – Future Electronics, a global leading distributor of electronic components, is very pleased to announce the immediate availability of ROHM’s BD99954GW/MUV dual-mode battery charging IC, a true first in the industry.

A growing number of portable devices, including notebook PCs, are adopting the USB Type-C PD standard that can charge up to 100W, providing a common charging platform. At the same time, wireless charging is gaining traction, increasing the demand to support both charging methods.

But delivering the wide power supply range required by USBPD requires an added boost function, and enabling two simultaneous charging methods to operate at the same time requires charge ICs and an MCU to control charge switching, presenting a significant barrier to introduction.

By combining its USBPD IC with proprietary semiconductor technologies, ROHM has met these needs, delivering dual-input charging ICs that support multiple power input sources.

The BD99954 delivers an output voltage between 3.07 and 19.2V to support 1-to-4-cell batteries through a buck-boost DCDC controller. On the input side, support for voltages between 3.8V and 25V is provided, covering the voltage range (5V to 20V) defined by USB PD. The industry’s first dual-input charging system can autonomously select from two inputs without an MCU and provide the necessary voltage and current to charge the battery.

The IC is also compatible with both USBPD and USB BC 1.2, facilitating configuration of dual-mode systems capable of simultaneous charging via USBPD, wirelessly, or from legacy USB adapters.

ROHM’s BD99954GW/MUV dual-mode battery charging IC is available now from Future Electronics. For more information and to watch a video about this product, click here. To see the entire portfolio of ROHM products available through Future Electronics, visit: www.FutureElectronics.com
